Project NOAH (New Options Awakens Hope), is a collaboration between Redeem Detroit, Pathways Academy (A Charter School for parenting teens), Wayne County Community College, and several local employers.
The goal is to take 10 teen parents who have graduated from Pathways Academy with their High School Diplomas and get them into a customized cohort at WCCC.
During or after completion of the cohort program, the students will have guaranteed employment once they also complete the Redeem Detroit job training program.
Redeem Detroit will not only provide job training, but we will also provide child care while the participants are in school as well as a resource center where they can come and get help with homework and learn other soft skills.
On The days that the resource center will be open, there will be child care on site to allow the participants to concentrate on working and getting the help they need while their child will be receiving an education that’s geared towards getting them ready for elementary school.
We will also provide transportation, parenting classes, financial literacy, and entrepreneurship classes. Our participants will hear from great guest speakers as well.
We want to make sure these young ladies and their children, who pressed their way through the obstacles and finished High School, will not be left behind - we will give them the support they need to truly be successful.
