Background


We Care For Youth is a community-based job training program offered at Glendale Galleria. The program is designed to give teens, some of whom are at-risk and in gangs, the skills to get and keep jobs. The program was co-founded by community leaders Linda Maxwell and Jose R. Quintanar. "It's to expose them to a real-world adult environment," says Maxwell.

Galleria merchants have successfully hired hundreds of teens for part-time jobs from this program.

The professional training covers job search and interview techniques, applications, personal appearance, self-esteem, communication skills and retail basics. The training also stresses the importance of staying in and completing school.
