TIZ CASE MANAGER
Living Classrooms Foundation strengthens communities and inspires young people to achieve their potential through hands-on education and job training, using urban, natural, and maritime resources as "living classrooms."
The Target Investment Zone, an identified zone of programming of Living Classrooms Foundation, contains the Adult Resource Center, Under Armour House at Fayette, the P.O.W.E.R. House, and Patterson Park House, which are major community service hubs. The Workforce Development Department provides job-training, personal skills workshops, industry-recognized certification training, and various workforce development initiatives at all of our centers in the TIZ for unemployed and disadvantaged adults. The major goals are to positively impact communities with direct services; provide workforce development and job training; and increase education and service-learning opportunities.
