It is important that students begin to think about their careers, and any additional support they may need to remain in school. For young people who have dropped out of school, the youth program provides jobs and the opportunity to earn a high school diploma or GED. One key element of the youth program is follow-up services for one year after program completion to help acquire the skills needed to succeed.
Youth partnerships have been formed to bring together schools and local employers to create job opportunities. The linkages between schools and employers move beyond traditional employment and training services. The partnerships strive to provide youths with the services necessary to get a high school diploma or GED, placement and retention in post-secondary education, job skills training, job opportunities and apprenticeships.
For more information about the WIA Title 1-B Youth Program, contact Chris Corlis, Employment and Training Program Manager at (307) 235-3242.
