ELITE (Empowering Leaders into Tomorrow’s Employment) is a Career Development Training for individuals between the ages of 18 to 24 years old. The goal of our training is to assist all of our participants with securing meaningful employment, support them as they earn their TASC/GED, enroll in post-secondary education, provide opportunities for work experience or vocational training through Broome-Tioga BOCES.
Utilizing highly interactive positive youth development, ELITE seeks to provide program participants with the skills to be successful in the workplace. Communication skills, resume building, conflict resolution, interviewing skills, proper application submission, basic math and reading improvement, and financial literacy skills are just some of the skills participants gain—all vital in the world of work.
ELITE provides several opportunities to earn nationally recognized certifications. ELITE Associates can earn the National Customer Service and Sales Certification, the safe food handling certification, ServSafe, and a Work Readiness Certification. ELITE serves to prepare young people with a solid foundation to grow from and become self-sufficient.
