Youth Programs

Triskeles programs for teens and young adults focus on real world experiences through trainings,  internships and community service, emphasizing hands-on learning and personal contact with inspiring mentors/teachers. When it is possible to do so, many youth return year after year because they are interested in ongoing learning and are enlivened by the experiences they have in our programs.

AFTER SCHOOL / WEEKEND

TEMPUS CONFERENCE FOR YOUNG ENTREPRENEURS – Tempus Young Entrepreneurs Conference has grown into an annual forum for high school and college aged youth to connect with nationally recognized speakers and entrepreneurs. High school and college aged young adults meet face to face with successful entrepreneurs, ranging in age from 16-60, to hear and be inspired by their stories, struggles and triumphs, to ask their burning questions, and to participate in small-group sessions highlighting entrepreneurial topics such as marketing, networking, creating a business plan, developing an elevator pitch, and others.

SCHOOL BASED PROGRAMS

SCHOOL BASED INTERNSHIPS — Some schools have promotion or graduation requirements which students fulfill during the school year outside of the classroom.  By arrangement with schools or individual home schooled students on a fee for service basis, Triskeles will develop and monitor individual placements for students to meet these requirements. The most frequent types of internships are:

  • Artisan Internships – in a workplace where a tangible product is made by hand
  • Service Learning Internships – to fulfill a community service or social service requirement
  • Career Exploration Internships – for students to explore a career path of their interest
