The workforce development system tailors services specifically for young adults (ages 16-24) to provide high school and college-aged students with the resources they need to build sustainable, lifelong careers. By getting an early start, young adults set themselves up for success sooner in life, increasing their lifelong earning potential.
The traditional college route doesn’t fit every lifestyle, and the workforce development network matches young adults with career training programs and entry-level positions that offer room to grow. Where remedial skills and credentials are needed, certified counselors craft personalized plans.
