Support local youth in college and workforce readiness programs

The Port Towns Youth Council and Pathways to Career Success Program develop youth leadership skills and civic engagement and help local high school students graduate on time and prepared for college and the workforce. Community Forklift has proudly supported these programs for many years by hosting student interns and mentoring them in workplace skills.

The non-profit that administers the initiatives, End Time Harvest Ministries (ETHM), advocates for at-risk and under-served youth and their families. Their goals are to:

  • Graduate students on time
  • Prepare students for college, career, and workforce entry
  • Equip students with leadership and character skills
  • Promote student-led health and wellness advocacy

ETHM is the premier youth development agency in Prince George’s County. Under the extraordinary leadership of Rev. Gail Addison, ETHM has taken its youth leadership and development to new heights. Through extensive mentoring and support, ETHM youth from the Port Towns are showing the country how to grow the next generation of visionary leadership.
