Executive Summary

Wausau Fresh Start (WFS) is a unique employment training and mentoring program designed to focus on Economic Opportunity for disadvantaged disaffected "at-risk" young adults ages 17 through 24. Being an AmeriCorps youth corps, WFS's two 10 member crews, and at least 40 volunteers, will perform meaningful service including building affordable homes that are sold to low-income eligible families, tackling conservation projects, and participating in neighborhood improvement projects in the greater Wausau, Wisconsin area. While performing these community projects, members also complete high school, develop employability skills, create career goals, learn adult living skills, and develop a sense of community. The CNCS investment of $130,000 will be matched with $300,814.
