About us

Ready to Work, (R2W), Youth Program was founded in 2007 and is a non-profit agency preparing our youth to succeed in the workplace and teaching them how to start their own business. Ready to Work (R2W) targets middle and high school students ages 14-18 and thus far has a proven track record. We have helped youth begin their very own business and assisted many to become employed post graduation from the program. The leadership team has gained notoriety in our community. R2W’s goal is to foster a commitment to young people to take a blended learning approach of mentoring, classroom and educational (in-school) training to prepare our youth to succeed in the workplace. Our results will improve the lives of many youth and families within Summit County which will ultimately enrich our communities.
