Wausau Area Hmong Mutual Association
Commission AmeriCorps State FY 2011
Wausau Fresh Start (WFS) is a unique mentoring program for disadvantaged "at-risk" young adults ages 17 through 24. Being an AmeriCorps youth corps, WFS's two 10 member crews build affordable homes that are sold to low-income eligible families. While building the homes, members also complete high school, develop career goals, learn adult living skills, and develop a sense of community.
