Workforce Development

Home / Workforce Development

When every young person has access to the guidance and tools they need to thrive academically, socially and emotionally, we help secure a brighter and healthier future for Chicago. More youth will graduate from high school, go to college, get good jobs, develop healthy relationships and stay out of the justice system.  We encourage youth to say “no” to negative influences and wasted potential;  we help them say “yes” to the future by arming them with tangible tools for gainful employment and success in adulthood.  Youth Guidance’s workforce development programs offer:

Career awareness and development supports
Job readiness training
Job placement assistance
High school graduation support
College preparatory assistance
Post-secondary support

Our Project Prepare and Project Prepare Blue programs are supported by grants provided by the Chicago Cook Workforce Partnership.
Our agency is an equal opportunity employer/program, Auxiliary aids and services are available upon request to individuals with disabilities.
