The YMCA of Middle Tennessee, established in 1875, is dedicated to building strong kids, strong families and strong communities through numerous programs and services.  The YMCA of Middle Tennessee reaches more than 194,000 in the community annually.  The Y's mission is to be a worldwide charitable fellowship united by a common loyalty to Jesus Christ for the purpose of helping persons grow in spirit, mind and body.  This grant will partially fund the Med Corps, which targets urban young women for training and work in the medical field.  Utilizing a case management methodology that includes a career development plan as well as loving care training, Med Corps participants will have the necessary support and structure that makes the attainment of employment in the medical field possible. In the first year, 36 women between the ages of 18-24 will participate with 31 of the 36 (or 85%) graduating the program within the year.  Additionally, the program will keep 85% or 31 of the 36 students on the career development plan leading to further education and/or further gainful employment in the medical field.
