What We Do
Future fit is a four-step program for youth and employers that is designed and delivered to students by employers in partnership with the Local Impact Alliance and Canton Chamber of Commerce. Future Fit assists youth by designing the steps to expose, integrate and ignite the passion for real-world experiences. Students will participate onsite with the employers, serving as a mutually beneficial student-employer relationship. Thus, the student will gain meaningful exposure and valuable experience before their graduation year. We prepare students who are not well-suited for a traditional college/university situation, and place them in internship programs so they get hands-on experience in a trade that doesn't require a college degree but, instead, highlights the student's best traits and passion.
Our target audience is two-fold:
1. High school sophomores, juniors and seniors.
2. Local business owners in are areas of Business, Skill-Trades/Automotive, Healthcare and Hospitality.
Our Ideas and Additional Information:
We would like something that looks somewhat futuristic and mechanical (keeping in mind that these are students ages 15-18 who like looking into careers like auto mechanic, builder, plumber, electrician ... jobs where they use their hands).
