Occupational Skills Academy

The Occupational Skills Academy will target young adults from Middle School through age 22 and include education and training in Cosmetology, Photography, T-Shirt and Apparel Design, Website and Graphic Design, Theatre, Film and Television Production, and Real Estate and Property Management. Successful participants over 18 will obtain recognized credentials and licenses, including a natural hair license or a real estate course ending with the licensing exam.

“MyCom is working to further the careers of our young adults in industries that appeal to their collective assets and allow each of them to succeed in life and positively contribute to the economy. We are excited to see their success and will celebrate with them on their journey,” said Blair Wise, MyCom Director of Partner Development.


MyCom Occupational Skills Training


  • “MyCom Youth Development Initiative aims to engage via education, such amazing out-of-school opportunities as they recognize that youth who are bullied are more likely to feel disconnected from school."

  • "MyCom has extended hundreds of youth exceptional opportunities to grow, expand their knowledge and express their voice in so many ways. I can honestly say that the youth are not the only ones who are learning, growing and having wonderful exposure opportunities. This adult is a beneficiary of countless blessing as well."
