New at Hope Builders—Child Development Careers Training Program
As you know, Hope Builders is committed to meeting the needs of local employers while bridging the gap for disconnected youth in Orange County. We’re so proud that over 95% of our graduates are placed in jobs, and of those, over 80% will retain employment for 6 months or longer.
To attract more young adults to careers, this week marks the launch of our Child Development Program, which prepares participants for the following employment opportunities:
- Early Childhood Assistant Teacher/Aide
- Child Development Assistant
- Child and Youth Program Assistant
- Instructional Aide – Behavior/Special Education
As with Hope Builders’ Construction and Medical Assisting programs, the Child Development program prepares young adults for careers that offer professional advancement opportunities, starting hourly wages ranging from $18-$22 and benefits. In partnership with the City of Anaheim, this new program also includes a 3-month paid internship, offering trainees valuable hands-on skills training.
We look forward to updating you on the success of the young people who enroll in this program. Thank you for helping to make this all possible!
