This Thanksgiving season, CURA is sponsoring a “Give Thanks” fundraiser to raise $2,000 for The Doe Fund’s Ready, Willing & Able Youth Initiative which provides education, personal growth and job readiness programs for 18-26 year-olds. Of this population being served, 50% have a history of incarceration, 23% grew up in foster care, 93% are African-American or Hispanic, 28% are fathers, and 48% lack a GED or high school diploma. While traditional youth programs emphasize transitional employment or education, The Doe Fund’s program allows participants to pursue both work and education at the same time without having to choose one over the other.
