Youth Working
Young people are among those who suffered most from the economic downturn. The employment rate for youth is nearly twice as high as the overall national average. Therefore, this section of the website is dedicated to provide information and resources to our Youth.

Here you will find the following:

  • Youth Council Meeting Minutes which details discussion that are occurring in our region among employers, community based organizations, religious organizations, elected officials, and high school educators that are developing new concepts, policies, and strategies to help youth find the information and skills necessary for employment.
  • Tools and resources for youth seeking employment that have dropped out of high school or college.
  • Keep you updated on upcoming events, training opportunities, youth employment boot camps, Jobs and More (JAM), and opportunities to keep you connected to workforce news, trends and needs.

The goal of this section of the site is to help youth build an economic foundation for adult independence and to help you find a rewarding career path.

Please feel free to relay any suggestions to improve this site. Your input is valuable to us.
