Providing teens with a roadmap for a happy life.
October, February, June
Project Launch is a weekend-long intensive workshop that provides Prescott teens (in the Tri-City area) with the ‘Competitive Advantage’ they need to compete in an aggressive job market.. The program is geared for teens ages 14 – 18.
Some of the topics covered in the program are:
- The Art of Effective Communication
- How to Nail an Interview
- Effective Teamwork
- Time Management
- Conversation Starters and Networking
- How to Deal With Difficult People
- Importance of GRIT
- Leadership Skills
- and much more.
After teens complete the workshops, they receive a Certificate of Completion. Project Launch also assists teens in obtaining summer internships and employment with area businesses. Teens who complete Project Launch also receive a Letter of Recommendation. The skills gained in Project Launch are not only critical for success in the workplace but provide teens with an excellent roadmap for a happy life.

THE MOON CAFE
Get your experience in the coolest coffee shop in town!
“The Moon Cafe” is open to the public M-F from 6:30AM- 2PM, as the cafe is only open to youth in the afternoon and evenings. Community members are encouraged to come by and get a coffee or sandwich and work in our amazing lounge area during the day.
