Each summer, the Child Care Corporation partners with 25-30 hospitals and nursing homes, which provide dependents of 1199SEIU members with mentoring opportunities within their parents’ workplace. In a six-week period, youth are introduced to the world of work and careers in the healthcare environment. The Youth Mentoring Program provides the employers with approximately 500 teens who acquire direct knowledge of the healthcare profession each year. YMP trains today’s youth to strengthen the healthcare industry by helping to shape young ladies and gentlemen into astute professionals.
