Program DescriptionParticipants are connected with a case manager who specializes in employment and education needs. Participants receive customized services designed to prepare them for work, life, and their futures. Case managers facilitate year-round classes, one-on-one meetings and work experiences where youth and young adults learn how to apply and interview for jobs, meet their employer’s expectations, get ready for their careers, and find services they need and transition successfully into adult, working life.
There is no cost to participate in Youth & Young Adult Services. The program is offered free to eligible participants through federal, state, and local funding.
