Career information, job skills assessment, information on education and training opportunities, Internet access. The Zone brings it all together in one place for teens and young adults.

Need some professional guidance? We have free resume-writing and job-search workshops available in WorkForce Centers statewide. We also have tools to help you create resumes, employment portfolios, cover letters and more.

For Youth with Disabilities
Zones have a variety of assistive technology for those with disabilities, including Zoom Text, JAWS, and NexTalk.net. We also cosponsor job fairs, career awareness events, and job shadowing so that high school seniors and young adults with disabilities can experience real workplaces.

Youth and young adults with disabilities who visit The Zone may want to learn about the Vocational Rehabilitation Services available through WorkForce Centers.
