Yardworks

Yardworks is available to students participating in our alternative school programs, namely Connex, Genesis, and GOAL. We also offer Yardworks to the adults we serve.

Why we do it...

Our aim is to provide Yardworks’ participants with valuable work experience and skills required to enter the workforce.
