Reframe is designed to empower students in 9th grade through freshman year of college with the opportunity to acquire the life and job skills that are necessary for career success. In addition, Reframe assists students in post-secondary planning as well as provides them with job and internship opportunities. Since the start of the program in 2000, over 180 internship opportunities have been provided to students.
Reframe is more than a job skill and placement program; it focuses on building character and competency for young adults to accomplish their career and life goals. Reframe recognizes how crucial it is to work with young adults in a more holistic approach. With this in mind, each student builds relationships with coaches and participates in interactive learning environments in order to gain core values critical to their success.
