Youth Development

Youth Employment Program (YEP): YEP gives local teenagers valuable employment training and hands-on work experience.  For some it is their first job, for others it is a way to develop their leadership skills.  YEP is a great way for local businesses to gain extra summer help while making a difference in a teenager’s life. 

Please contact us if you are interested in participating as an employer or an employee.




School Garden Project: The Highland Center teamed  with Highland County Public Schools and Virginia Cooperative Extension/4-H to renovate the school greenhouse and maintain garden space to create year-round growing spaces for student use and education.
