Posted by Challenge Program on December 13, 2022

THE CHALLENGE PROGRAM (CP) is a nonprofit “earn while you learn” construction training program serving youth ages 18 to 24 with serious barriers to employment in Wilmington, Delaware since 1999. Our mission is to provide vocational training for select Delaware youth to empower them with the confidence, skills and purpose needed to become highly employable and self-sufficient. We offer full-time, paid work experience, basic education and GED preparation, certifications, case management services, and job search and placement assistance.  We are also an award-winning construction company. Funded largely by contracts with the federal and local government, local foundations and corporate partners, Challenge Program also generates earned income through construction and woodworking projects.
