Today, young people need more to succeed...
More than a high school diploma...
More than a part-time job at a fast-food restaurant.

They need information about career options and real-world work experience and technical and personal skills that show they belong in the 21st Century workplace.


Employers are demanding these skills, and the Young Adult Employment Initiative provides programs and services to help young people meet those demands.

Career exploration and hands-on exposure to jobs are key to helping youth understand career paths.

Community-Based Partnerships help build a pipeline workforce by bringing together schools, businesses and community leaders to support young adults with pre-employment services, internships and paid jobs.
