Project Inspire Celebrates Third Graduating Class
After a two-year hiatus due to COVID-19, USA Health University Hospital recently celebrated its third class of Project Inspire “graduates.” A mentorship and training program for at-risk youth, Project Inspire seeks to curb gun violence in the community, while preparing teens for success after high school. This year, University Hospital had five new local Project Inspire participants who were identified by the Mobile County Juvenile Court as candidates who stood to benefit the most from the 10-week program. The students toured Bishop State Community College and learned about the opportunities it offers. They also participated in career planning activities such as ACT/GED preparation, resumé development, mock job interviews and training. The career-planning sessions are designed to encourage participants to formulate a vision for their future careers and develop an action plan. After completing the sessions, the five students identified interests in real estate, truck driving and medicine. One student interviewed for a job and was hired while completing the program.
