In partnership with the Baton Rouge Dream Center, HP Serve operates a youth development program in the 70805 zip code area that builds youths’ leadership skills and helps them explore various career options. Youth participate in school and community service projects to better engage them with their communities.
Homeless and at-risk youth want to have a livable-wage job but lack the skills and training to do so. HP Serve partners with businesses throughout the community to operate an employment program to prepare,place, and maintain livable-wage jobs.
Most at-risk youth face educational and life-skills challenges. Upon entry into our programs, HP Serve assesses each youth to determine his/her greatest needs and ensures that they receive appropriate services to more toward self-sufficiency.
HP Serve works with numerous organizations throughout the state to train, equip, and provide services to government, business, and community organization personnel to serve victims of human trafficking. HP Serve works together with the Department of Child and Families Services to screen for and identify potential trafficked victims.
