Hip hip hooray, the PROG Development Center is now open!
The PROG Development Center is without a doubt, an absolute labor of love. For almost two years the PROG team has been brainstorming how they could enact innovative solutions that will catalyze systemic change for the community and searching for the perfect location. Now the fruits of their labor have come to fruition and we couldn't be more excited for this wonderful asset located in the heart of West Valley.
Their team is simply....wonderful! Their efforts in bringing this project to life are admirable and you can tell how much they care. Beth, Diana, and Franque have deeply engaged with community and resource partners to make sure they intentionally designed their programming and you can feel that throughout the center.
"Thanks to the hard work and support of each individual, Youth Advisory and Steering Council members, colleagues, and partners, the PROG Foundation is now offering youth in the Greater West Valley City a space to access the technology, education, and development opportunities they desire.”
– Beth Martial, Director of the PROG Development Center.
So who is PROG? What does the center entail?
The PROG Foundation, the non-profit founded by PROG Holdings, Inc. is the force behind this exciting new center. The PROG Holdings Foundation was created to improve lives by increasing access to technology, education, and development that enhances socioeconomic opportunity.
With the opening of the PROG Development Center, the Foundation has a welcoming space for young adults in the greater West Valley City area to access in-person and hybrid programming, initiatives, and other offerings designed to develop the skills and resources necessary to help positively shape their futures.
What does that look like?
PROG provides support for high school graduation, access to higher education, linkages for workplace preparation and enriching employment opportunities, and connections to community resources. Through community-based participatory partnerships, the Greater West Valley City youth and local leaders are working across sectors to bring this to life.
