Ampersand partners with the City of Houston

Did you hear?? Ampersand has partnered with the City of Houston’s Hire Houston Youth program to prepare Houston youth for professional opportunities through our proven asynchronous training!

We customized a portion of our proven 50 hours of curriculum to upskill and prepare the young professionals applying for the Hire Houston Youth program. The City selected their top five modules, for four hours of customized content and training, to help prepare the next generation of Houstonians to enter the workforce, and ensure their interns are ready to get to work on day #1.

Before young professionals can be hired by the City of Houston, they must go through Ampersand’s program in order to be equipped and prepared with the necessary tools and resources to be successful in the available positions. In order to apply, visit Hire Houston Youth’s website.

 “Together we can empower an entire generation and in turn build towards a better, more prosperous Houston.” - Mayor Sylvester Turner
