Job Training

Job-training at YouthWorks focuses on successful integration into the work world. It prepares youth with education, basic job skills, and responsible work habits.

Over the years, our job training has grown to include job placement services. In the course of a year, YouthWorks leverages funds from various grants and contracts to cover wages and stipends for approximately 200 young people in job training, apprenticeships, and job placements.

Apprenticeships and More

Our young people work in a variety of jobs. We place young people with local nonprofits and businesses such as landscaping firms and plumbing companies, and we offer entrepreneurial training for small business start-ups.
