United Way of Delaware’s Life Map is a chance for youth to gain valuable insights as they make a visual of their past adversities for use as a map to their future goals.
The Summer Youth Employment Program is a partnership between United Way of Delaware, The City of Wilmington, New Castle County, and the Delaware Dept. of Labor. SYEP provides opportunities for students to enter the workforce. Participants are taught valuable skills necessary to not only be well-rounded employees, but well – rounded members of society in general. The Life Map experience is woven into the training, inspiring students to use obstacles as lessons learned while on the way to a larger goal.
