Workforce Solutions offers young people in-school and out-of-school, aged 16-24, a wealth of opportunities to get their future started on the right foot through our Youth Services program. In addition, foster youth receive priority of service.
We can help:
Youth Services can include:
Career exploration to help youth learn about various occupations available in the Heart of Texas region that fit with your unique career preferences, skills, interests, values and lead to a good paying job. Learn more about high-skill, high-growth jobs.
Not quite sure what careers interest you? Want to see how much money it takes to live these days? Get a reality check. It’s a lot more expensive than you think. Be prepared, and plan ahead!
Job Corps is a free education and training program that helps young people learn a career, earn a high school diploma or GED, and find or keep a good job. For eligible young people ages 16 through 24 that qualify as low income, Job Corps provides the all-around skills needed to succeed in a career and in life. Visit the Job Corps website for more information.
Workforce Solutions Training Grants support training for some of the region’s high-skill, high-growth occupations. If you’re interested in one of these careers, we may be able to contribute to a financial aid package.
Individuals must meet eligibility requirements to qualify for a training grant. Eligibility requirements may vary based on program and funding sources. Learn more here.
