Visalia, CA (June 15, 2007)- As the community action agency for Tulare County, Community Services & Employment Training (CSET) strengthens youth, families, and caring communities. Their purpose is to reduce the causes of poverty by creating healthy, prosperous, and safe communities- communities where children want to live when they grow up because life is good.
CSET serves to reveal the greatness that is in everyone, by providing education and training, facilitating youth and community development, and creating jobs and resources. As an organization, they take inspiration in the words of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., “Everybody can be great, because everybody can serve.”
For example, in 2004, CSET’s Tulare County Youth Corps enhanced or created 25 parks, made 7 communities safer places for children and families to play, planted 200 trees, and provided construction and landscape workplace skills training to 60 individuals.
