Youth Workforce Connections

The Youth Workforce Connections (YWC) program, funded by the West Kentucky Workforce Board, offers GED assistance, career guidance and training, academic counseling, and employment services to area youth between the ages of 18 and 24 who are economically disadvantaged and face barriers to appropriate employment. The YWC also facilitates training programs to prepare participants for skilled jobs available in the region. Work experience and paid internship programs are available to assist youth in obtaining high-paying, skilled positions in many careers. The program pays participants the prevailing wage for their position during the training period, providing the employer with an opportunity to assess the skills and abilities of the participant before putting him or her on the payroll. Throughout the process, these youth are closely monitored, with the YWC office staff serving as a resource for both the youth and the employer. These services are available free of charge. Interested youth and area businesses are encouraged to contact our staff to learn more about how they can benefit from the program.
