Mission Statement


Our mission is to break the cycle of generational poverty that often consigns low-income youth to lives of economic and educational disadvantage.

Description


The Work Force, an initiative of the Cambridge Housing Authority, is a comprehensive life-skills and vocational training program for lowincome youth currently living in Cambridge public housing. The Work Force provides participants with sustained networks of learning and support which begin in the eighth grade and continue through their senior year in high school. Our mission is to break the cycle of generational poverty that often consigns low-income youth to lives of economic and educational disadvantage. Our program employs a highly structured "whole person" approach that is unique in both its manner and duration of support. We are more comprehensive, we enroll youth at a younger age and work with them for a longer period of time. We believe that broad-based support and training in each of the central developmental areas of a student's life?home, school, and work?are critical to his or her long-term success.
