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.
