About The HOOD A Partnership for Youth Employment
The HOOD is located at Oaklands Corporate Center, 479 Thomas Jones Way, Suite 350, Exton, PA 19341.
Our mission, in partnership with The Chester County Workforce Investment Board (WIB), The Chester County Department of Community Development (DCD) and the Council for the Workforce of Tomorrow (CWT) is to facilitate a workforce development system designed to provide youth with access to opportunities for educational enrichment, career development and job placement services.
The HOOD is the place where in-school and out-of-school youth and young adults in Chester County, age 14-21, can attend classes for academic remediation, workforce development, GED preparation, vocational training and post-secondary education preparation.
As a partner with The CWT, The HOOD supports youth during the dynamic transition from adolescence to adulthood through the provision of services offering academic, career, and post secondary preparation, and leadership training.
The HOOD is the place to be to help you realize your full potential. Our staff assists you with getting your first job, by providing certified training to assist you in expanding into different career paths and in allowing your dreams to become a reality. We invest our time in the success of our participants and the word is spreading about our accomplishments.
