Harambee Youth Training Corporation targets at-risk youth to transform and encourage them with the hope of the gospel of Jesus Christ and to equip and empower them to know and experience the value and dignity of work by training and mentoring in a biblically-based, work-ethic environment.
Harambee Youth Training Corporation is committed to training youth in the St. Louis area by providing an opportunity for them to gain both personal character development and the necessary work experience to succeed in a work environment. In order to accomplish this, Harambee seeks to build partnerships that connect resources and create relationships with individuals, communities, businesses, churches and government agencies. All of this is to be done in the context of serving the elderly, widows, immigrants, single-parent households and the poor.
Harambee’s training programs are funded in part through grants from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, the St. Louis Community Development Administration, and the St. Louis Affordable Housing Commission.
