Office of Youth Development
Our youth employment, training and education programs provide vital experience and guidance to help prepare Minnesota's neediest young people to succeed.
We serve low-income and at-risk youth who lack academic and “applied” skills considered critical for current and future workplace needs.
We also provide a wealth of practical and technical information designed to help and guide professional service providers who work closely with youth.
If partners or providers have questions regarding program/service operations during COVID19, check our Frequently Asked Questions.
