Youth Job Center

Youth Job Center is focused on helping students successfully transition out of high school immediately after graduation, a factor with the potential to reduce significant employment barriers later in life.
Each site offers the foundational set of Job-Readiness Training services, advising, and other support. In 2015-16, YJC integrated much of this work into classrooms at all three sites, through seminar and Career and Technical Education (CTE) classes. At Gage Park YJC works with Umoja Student Development Corporation and other youth service agencies to provide a comprehensive curriculum for college & career planning for all high school students.
In addition, YJC provides support after school, hosts recruiting opportunities with employers, and provides connections to careers through field trips, internships, and job shadowing.
