The Future Culture Creators Employment Program provides youth ages 14-19, currently enrolled in school, with enriching, constructive year-round training, employment, and internships through subsidized placement with local creatives, community-based organizations, and non-profit organizations. Each cohort of FCC youth completes 12 weeks of training on workforce development, trauma-informed care, design thinking, financial literacy, and community engagement training, followed by job placement.

Dual School is a 12-week program that utilizes social impact projects to empower youth to become changemakers. In cohorts, students participate in design thinking workshops

and mentorship opportunities to deeply understand a problem, and create and launch meaningful solutions. The latest Dual School programming includes the Healthcare Hub in partnership with ChristianaCare, which focuses on healthcare career training, and a Design Thinking workshop with the YMCA.



The Community Well-Being Ambassador (CWA) Initiative is a community-driven, place-based prevention strategy to increase the capacity of targeted neighborhoods in the City of Wilmington by promoting community well-being and resiliency among their residents across the lifespan.  CWAs provide mental health, substance abuse, positive activities, youth support, and essential need solutions.
