Education & Jobs
With one of the highest drop-out rates in the nation, our region has a huge demand for services offering alternative education and job training.
Our education services and job training focus on helping our young people earn their GEDs, with a plan to transition to higher education and meaningful jobs in the workforce.
A Wrap-Around Approach
At ¡YouthWorks!, we offer a strategic wrap-around approach to helping young people take the necessary steps to achieve their full potential. As part of that approach, we help take care of issues that get in the way of earning a diploma or taking on the responsibility of a job.
If a young man studying for his GED needs counseling, we see that he gets it. If a young woman is ill and can’t study, we arrange for medical care. If a youth gets an apprenticeship with a local plumbing firm and needs a warm jacket for cold outdoor work, we provide it.
