Young Adults

Did You Know?

  • All of the top 10 jobs in demand require skills for technology that didn't exist when you entered junior high school.
  • For students starting a four-year college degree, half of what they learn in the first year of school is outdated by the third year.
  • If you are starting college next year, chances are that what you imagine as your best career path today may not exist by the time you graduate.
  • The simplest of tomorrow's jobs will require workers to have a high degree of digital and multimedia fluency.
  • By 2020, most jobs will require you to speak at least two languages.

We Can Help


How do you prepare yourself to work with coworkers that may not speak the same language, for jobs that don't yet exist, using technologies that have not yet been invented? How do you compete for jobs with someone who has the same skills and education as you do, but who are located half-way around the world?

We are here to help you by making sure you have access to education and training programs that continually provide opportunities to learn new things. You have capabilities that are uniquely yours. Let us help you make the most of them.

The youth program is for eligible youth ages 16-24.

  • Career Counseling
  • Financial Literacy Education
  • Labor market and employment information
  • Activities that help youth prepare for and transition to post-secondary education and training
