About our Youth Program
The Workforce Development Board supports services year-round to more than 600 youth and young adults between the ages of 16 and 21 who have barriers to graduating from school or launching a career. Through work experience, mentoring, academic support, and career development assistance, we help young people enter the workforce with the knowledge, skills, and abilities to be successful in a 21st-century educational and/or workplace setting.
Connecting hundreds of youth ages 16-21 to summer jobs, internships and other high-quality work-based learning experiences, such as industry-lead summer camps.
For youth who are still in school, but need help in reaching their goals, Workforce Investment Act (WIA) services can be key.
WIA services can help youth through age 21 reach their training, education, and employment goals.
The Youth Council is a subcommittee of the Workforce Development Board that meets bimonthly to develop policy and create programs that meet the needs of our county’s youth. The Youth Council’s goal is to improve academic achievement and employment opportunities that lead to a self-sufficient lifestyle. Our programs build self-esteem, offer work experience, build leadership skills, and help youth reach their potential.
