CareerSource Palm Beach County Youth Services

 

ARE YOU READY?

CareerSource Palm Beach County will be accepting applications for August 1, 2014. Starting in the fall, we will be enrolling eligible youth (Palm Beach County youth ages 17-21) in a structured work readiness program.

Each applicant must be:

  • Available Now -- You are not enrolled in school and/or not working part or full-time.
  • Committed -- You are prepared to dedicate six hours per day, four days per week for five weeks.

Program participants will be invited to participate in a two-day selection process, where they will be evaluated for eligibility and suitability for the program. Those who successfully complete the selection process will transition to five weeks of an Action Prep class. During Action Prep, each individual will:

  • Explore interests/careers
  • Develop leadership skills
  • Receive money management training
  • Participate in field trips and community service activities
  • Engage in mock interviews and resume building 
  • Potentially earn approximately $900 in five weeks.

In the final phase, graduates move to one-on-one coaching.  After the five-week program, each participant will transition to higher education or employment to align with a chosen area of interest.

We look forward to reviewing your application in August.
