Gateway Vista Partners with Lighthouse TIP Program to Empower Youth in Trades and Industry

The Lighthouse TIP program seeks to equip youth, particularly those from low-income families, with the skills and opportunities to pursue fulfilling careers in various industries, including construction, nursing, culinary arts, and more. By offering real-world experience through on-the-job training, internships, and apprenticeships, the program aims to break the cycle of poverty and empower youth to achieve a better standard of living.

Through this partnership, professionals at Gateway Vista are providing hands-on exposure to careers in the senior living industry, including assisted living, skilled nursing care, and rehabilitation services.

“We believe this program is a great way to introduce teens to new career paths,” says Mollie Cook, Director of Human Resources at Nye Health Services. “Many students have limited exposure to the depth of career opportunities available in the industry. By working directly with residents and experiencing the importance of quality care firsthand, youth gain a true understanding of the industry and become excited about potential pathways.”

The impact of the program has been immediate and profound. Following their participation in the program at Gateway Vista, several youth expressed eagerness to pursue careers in senior living and applied for open positions on the same day. One participant has already secured a position at Gateway Vista, demonstrating the program’s effectiveness in inspiring and empowering youth.

“At Lighthouse, we believe that ‘you can’t be what you can’t see,'” says Jeremy Trujillo, Director of the Trades/Industries Program at Lighthouse. “Through this program and our partnership with organizations like Gateway Vista, students actively engage in training, envision themselves in future roles, and forge meaningful connections with residents, creating a lasting impact on both students and seniors alike.”Lighthouse TIP Program - Gateway Vista Partnership
