The Kitchen has been awarded a grant from The Timken Foundation of Canton for the development of a new learning center at Rare Breed Youth Services. The Learning Center will be a place for youth to engage with critical life skills, education/job preparation, and housing intakes. The center will also be used for staff training and development.
The grant will provide new technology including computers, tablets, a printer, and a projector; furnishings like tables, chairs, and a podium; online training materials for case managers; and two new air conditioning units to service the building.
The learning center will expand Rare Breed’s capacity to provide high quality programming to youth in need. Youth programming includes a variety of topics that prepare youth for self-sufficiency in adulthood, including healthy relationships, interview prep, and money management.
