YOUTH EMPLOYMENT and training PROGRAMS
Our Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act programs, for youth, who are not currently in school, provide access to training and skills building activities that will result in jobs and self-sustaining careers.
The Capital Workforce Partners Summer Youth Employment and Learning Program is a 5-6 week, summer “work and learn” experience in July and August designed for students between 8th – 12th grades. Students are trained using the Capital Workforce Partners Career Competencies System.
Designed for High School students, this programming aims to provide meaningful exposure to the private sector workplace through initiatives such as: career exploration days, job shadowing opportunities, field trips and company tours, internships and pre-apprenticeships and job readiness/career competency training.
