The Youth Training Center


We want to make Pulaski, Virginia, the place for developing within our youth a great capacity for meaningful work and leadership.  By showing students how to create their own resumes, write cover letters, and engage a potential employer during an interview, we are helping to build valuable future employees and leaders.


In this youth training program, the students, aged 14-25, spend time in a variety of local businesses in order to:

  • experience what it takes to operate a franchise or entrepreneurship

  • ask questions of business owners/managers and employees to ignite interest in preparing for a vocation after high school that is mutually rewarding

  • discover what opportunities for employment are available within the community
