The Subsidized Wage Employment Program (SWEP) is an innovative program that assists young adults ages 18-24 who are receiving assistance through CalWorks in establishing permanent employment. This program follows these young adults for 18 months as they gain and retain employment with a goal of earning a long term living wage.

Young mother worked with us for more than a year through various jobs while she made moves to finally land in her dream field of child care. She is now attending school to become a teacher in the child development field.
The contract was renewed after we took the first year to learn the best practices under the tutelage of YEP, Inc. We now have a firm grasp on what is needed to help these young parents enter the careers of their choosing. We aim to help 12 young parents enter and grow in the field of their choosing this year.
