About the Together Now Program:
Together Now is a start-up Non-Profit Organization that is committed to helping Syracuse inner city youth. Our goal as an organization is to facilitate a 6 week program in which kids ages 16-18 are taught professional development skills in a classroom/workshop setting one day a week, while providing an internship experience with local businesses. It is our hope that through our program we can provide city youth with opportunities for their future. Inspiring a passion for a career, invoking a sense of entrepreneurialism, and delivering the necessary skills and connections to gain a prosperous future. Our mission statement is "Together, we can make a difference Now." because we truly believe a community working together can make a real difference right now in the lives of this generation.
