The Eckerd Connects’ Opportunity Youth Program will engage, empower, and energize opportunities for young adults to address the barriers to successful education and employment. Serving youth between the ages of 16 through 24 who live in the Rapides or Vernon Parishes and are not currently engaged in an educational program and are unemployed.
In partnership with local community connections, Eckerd Connects will provide support services to connect young adults with opportunities that develop into sustainable career development.
This project is funded in part by a Reconnecting CenLA Program Grant from The Rapides Foundation. (Established 2023)
