Mission Statement: “Transforming the way youth engage in the community by instilling strong work ethics”
YIPE in Iredell County, Inc. (Young Individuals Pursuing Employment) is a youth-driven employment-based organization centrally located in the downtown area of historic Statesville in Iredell County.
Our agency works with individuals between the ages of 14-21 to develop the skills needed in order to successfully and confidently enter the workforce. We find jobs out in the community based on our individual’s career interests.
Our non-profit’s purpose is to provide hands-on employment based training, education, job placement and retention for youth between the ages of 14 and 21. All participants will be given the opportunity to have input into the operations and activities of the organization as it pertains to training other youth in surrounding areas .
YIPE also has an internal employment component called YIPE@Work which hires interested youth to work in the YIPE office.
Giving Tuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. Celebrated on Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the United States) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving. One of the best ways to get involved is in your community.
On December 3, 2019, join the movement and give whether it’s some of your time, a donation, or the power of your voice in the community.
