We offer youth career readiness, occupational skills training, job search and placement services… helping them become valuable, self-reliant community members. Funded by the following sources as well as corporate and private foundation grants, we conceive, design, implement, and operate programs that help youth get the skills and training to transition successfully into adulthood:
- The US Department of Labor’s Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) out-of-school program (ages 16-24);
- The MA Department of Elementary and Secondary Education’s School to Career Connecting Activities program for high school students;
- The YouthWorks program funded through the Commonwealth of Massachusetts Executive Office of Labor and Workforce Development and administered statewide by Commonwealth Corporation.
MassHire Career Centers in Worcester and Southbridge deliver youth services and programming. Our staff offer youth expert guidance and tools to instill confidence, help them stay competitive in the workforce, and engage potential employers.
