With the support of local employer-partners, youth ages 16-24 can gain real-world, paid work experience!
Last year, almost 260 youth were placed with local employer-partners through the assistance of Goodwill® Youth Programs.
We believe that through real world work experience, youth develop their skills that will help them succeed in other job positions. Through a contract and funding with Arizona@Work One-Stop, Pima County the YOUTH EMPLOYMENT program places youth ages 16-24 with local employers during the summer or after school to attend training and gain paid work experience. Our Employer-Partners include Saavi, Tucson Botanical Gardens, Reid Park Zoo, and other local employers.
Participants get PAID for 160 or 300 hours of work experience through the Youth Employment program.
