about more than words

At More Than Words, youth earn a paycheck and develop soft skills, while receiving compassionate accountability, support, and training from caring adults who believe in their resilience, abilities and potential. We help youth engage in education, make plans for their career, and address complex barriers like homelessness. We stay in close contact with collaterals – parents, caseworkers, etc. – and proactively support youth for at least two years after they graduate.
