The Fresh Futures Youth Program is a year-long program for Duval County high-school students, providing training in financial literacy, college readiness, job readiness, academic enrichment, health and wellness, family involvement, cultural outings, and leadership and character development. The program culminates with a summer internship experience for qualifying students. Students meet at least two Saturdays a month during the school year at the Weaver Center for Community Outreach.

During the summer, students who meet all program requirements qualify to be placed in paid six-week summer internships. During these internships, students have the opportunity to use skills learned during the Fresh Futures job readiness sessions, and they receive on-the-job training and feedback from their employers. The 2016-17 program has more than 80 students enrolled. Due to limited space, enrollment is capped each year.
