Middlesex Youth Development Career Services Seeks Area Youth for Career Development Program
Middlesex Youth Development Career Services Seeks Area Youth for Career Development Program with Free Certificate Programs at Local College
(Middlesex County, CT) The Middlesex Youth Development Career Services program announced that it is seeking out-of-school area youth aged 16 to 24 for a program that provides job training, paid internships and certificate programs for young people. The program is funded by the Community Renewal Team and supports youth in the process of joining the workforce. We would like to offer youth choices in certified nursing aid, EMT, phlebotomy, security guard training, etc.
“There is tremendous need for this program as it helps out of school youth receive free access to college classes that prepares them for the workforce,” said Julie Sapia-Bryant, program manager for the Middlesex Youth Development Career Services.
To participate youth must meet age and income eligibility requirements and must reside in Middlesex County or Meriden. Students work with the program coordinator to set specific employment and/or education goals while in the program. Students will have the opportunity to participate in a paid work internship while taking classes. Students of the program are placed into employment after completion of the certificate program and are exited from the program. They will continue to receive follow up for a full year after they complete the program.
“We are excited to begin searching for students to join this valuable program which allows them to be successful in whatever field they choose to pursue,” said Sapia-Bryant.
Enrollment in the program serves 20 Workforce Investment Act youth and the program occurs on a rolling basis since not all youth will receive technical training at a community college. Assessments are part of the selective process and they are critical to match individualized service plans with individual needs. A test in reading and mathematics is administered as a pre-test and post-test for those students who did not pass the first time.
