Who We Are
Training Grounds was founded in 2005 by Tom Brown, a community pioneer, and activist, who designed Training Grounds to be a model for developing youth and adults in socioeconomically disadvantaged communities.
He has embedded workplace principles into the Training Grounds teachings that empower participants to use transformational techniques to help them excel in life.
- We serve as a community liaison, resource center, and youth safe haven
- We train community members in soft skills, life skills, and occupational pursuits
- We connect the community to service providers, employers, resources, and occupational training programs
Our work would not be as impactful without the support from dynamic partnerships that help us to amplify our mission.
