Work Experience Opportunity!
Work experience is a planned, structured learning experience that takes place in a workplace and provides young adults with opportunities for career exploration and skill development. A work experience may take place in the private for-profit section, the non-profit sector, or the public sector.
Our work experience program is designed to give young adults the opportunity to work in a supportive environment that will allow them to develop the necessary skills to obtain and maintain employment in the future.
WIOA identifies four types of work experience for young adults:
- Summer employment and other employment opportunities available throughout the school year
- Pre-apprenticeship programs
- Internships and job shadowing
- On-the-job training.
If you are a young adult interested in gaining work experience, learn more about our Careers in Focus program at (link to main youth page).
