Youth Services

Building a Future:

.

 

The ValleyWorks Career Center helps youth gain the skills, experience and confidence to pursue their ideal career.  There are many resources available to youth and young adults to explore their education, employment and training opportunities.  The agency has a staff of professional Youth Counselors who can help each young person discover their career interest and work toward attaining the skills and certifications to be fully employed.

 

ValleyWorks partners with many agencies throughout the Merrimack Valley to provide young people aged 14-21 with employment and training opportunities.  Services are provided to In-School and Out-of-School Youth.  The in-school program helps youth explore many career options, while completing their high school education.  We also offer programs for out-of-school youth which help them earn their GED, gain specific work skills or find employment.

 

Programs vary in design and include Work Readiness/Internship Opportunities, Occupational Skills Training, Counseling and Tutoring, Career Development, Unsubsidized Employment, GED preparation, MCAS preparation, Connecting Activities and follow-up.

 

WHERE DO I START

 

First you become a member of the ValleyWorks Career Center.  This membership is free and discusses the services that are available to you at the Center.  Staff will explain to you at the “Youth Welcome Session the eligibility criteria of all the programs provided at ValleyWorks.   At that time you will begin to develop a career plan to help you determine your goals for success.


 

 

YOUTH RESOURCE ROOM

 

Visit our new Youth Resource Room and schedule times to explore your interests and meet with a Youth Counselor to review the best avenue for success.  The Youth Resource Room is designed to help you quickly and easily secure your first job, find a new job or research other career opportunities. 

 

The Youth Resource Room has been developed to increase the number of youth job seekers to the Career Center by creating a “Youth friendly” environment.  Staff will be available every Tuesday afternoon from

1-4 pm.  Youth will be able to talk with the Youth staff, network, job search, explore careers, learn more about Career Center Services, meet with Employment Advisors and build work readiness skills.
