100 College Ave, Rochester, NY
Imprintable Solutions Ink, a printing, promotional products and decorated apparel company started an internship program with the initial goal to give a “learn to earn” experience for young people in Rochester labeled at-risk due to poverty, homelessness, gang affiliation, not being in school, pregnancy/parenting, differently abled or any number of other reasons.
This internship has grown to become its own division within the company called Imprinting Lives.
Imprinting Lives is collaborative:
Through multi-faceted partnerships with local community groups, small businesses and workforce development programs, Imprinting Lives establishes a path for young people to learn skills and build job readiness. What began as a pilot now provides young adults in Greater Rochester with full-time employment, skills and connections for the future.
Imprinting Lives focuses on solutions:
It is well documented that our community’s youth and young adults face many complex issues that can get in the way of their education, careers and ultimately their success. Imprinting Lives can be part of the solution. Each year we employ and train individuals in the areas of direct to garment printing, customized merchandising, embroidery, events and customer service. These youth not only develop valuable work and life skills, but can find a bridge from instability to success.
Imprinting Lives does this work differently:
Imprinting Lives takes an honest, authentic approach to caring for its team. From setting up a bank account and learning how to navigate personal finances to earning a G.E.D. and passing a driver’s test – Imprintable Solutions leadership and staff support youth well beyond the 9-5 workday. We understand that lives outside of work may look different and we recognize that barriers—even access to basic necessities—can impact a person’s professional performance. That’s why we strive to empower our team with the tools they need to be successful, whether that’s basic needs support, referrals to critical resources, access to mentors and advocates, or flexible scheduling that helps to accommodate challenges.
