EMPLOY – Youth Employment Program

The EMPLOY Program is a federally funded client centered employment program for youth aged 16 – 30 who face barriers to employment. EMPLOY assists youth in attaining the broad range of skills, knowledge and work experience they need to be successful in today’s job market.

This award winning program offers youth the opportunity to develop the tools needed for a successful job search, understand employer expectations, and learn the communication and problem solving skills which results in them being a valuable employee.

At the conclusion of the 4 week paid classroom portion of EMPLOY, youth will participate in a 6 week paid work practicum with a local employer. This portion of the program is intended for the participants to develop and enhance employability and occupational skills through practical on-the-job experience. Participants will be continuously supported by a Job Coach and will receive individual employability skills and certification training as needed.
