Employment for At-Risk Youth

We help youth who come from low-income families, have difficult barriers to employment, and are at the greatest risk of suffering serious setbacks in life without extra help and professional guidance.

Our programs are designed to help at-risk teens and young adults find jobs, build job skills, learn specific trades, and explore education, training, and career options.

Minnesota Youth Program

The program serves low-income and at-risk youth ages 14 to 24 who lack academic and "applied skills" considered critical for current and future workplace needs.

WIOA Young Adult Program

The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) takes effect July 1, 2015. Until then, eligible youth will continue to receive services under the WIA Youth Program.

Youthbuild Program

The Youthbuild program provides specialized training for youth and young adults between the ages of 16 and 24 who are at risk of not completing or have not completed their high school education.
