The Ahwatukee Foothills Family YMCA, a nonprofit community service organization serving the Ahwatukee community, announced that it’s the recipient of a 2013 Arbonne Foundation Grant that will fund the Teen Employee University program to help serve young teens in our community through leadership development and community service learning. The Teen Employee University (TEU) program is taking registrations at the Ahwatukee Foothills YMCA for teens ages 14 and up. The Teen Employee University program will provide hands-on workshops in life skills, job readiness, communication and interview skills, finding the right job for your strengths, personal accountability, application process, interview skills and most importantly volunteer internships that allows hands-on job experience.

The Arbonne Charitable Foundation grants help teenaged girls and boys develop the confidence to realize their true potential and reach for their dreams. The Arbonne Angel volunteer program help teens learn life skills that can carry over into a variety of situations, leading to newfound self-confidence — and ultimately higher self-esteem.
