IN THE DOOR'S Youth Program helps prepare young adults—ages 16 to 24—for college or a career. This program provides career pathways, credential attainment, and supportive services to young adults who may face barriers to employment. Through local partnerships, participants gain hands-on work experience. They also develop academic, career, and life skills that lead to lifelong success. Topics include vocational skills, financial literacy, and leadership development.

 

Our program aligns with the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) and its 14 Key Elements. Program participants are comprehensively assessed to identify their individual skills, abilities, interests, and employment goals. Each participant is exposed to educational services and training that will increase their skill sets for today’s competitive labor market.

 

Services include:

  • Job readiness training

  • National certifications

  • Internships

  • Supportive services

  • Paid work experience (available in most locations)

  • Leadership and soft skills training

  • Educational program assistance to low-income high school graduates
