FREE Job Readiness/Career Exploration, Job Placement & GED Preparation for Youth

To assist out-of-school youth, ages 17 to 21, in Bucks County enter the emerging workforce and achieve their future goals -- secure a better paying job, advance their career, earn a better wage, build life skills and gain self sufficiency – the Bucks County Youth Center at the CareerLink is offering FREE training, workshops and GED preparation to qualified young adults.

The Bucks County Youth Center at the CareerLink provides FREE job search assistance, coaching, transition planning, resume preparation and certification preparation for the National Retail Federation and ServSafe exam to youth who have graduated high school and are looking for employment and youth who have dropped out of school [ages 17 – 21] in the Bucks County area who are seeking full time employment.

The Bucks County Youth Center at the CareerLink is conveniently located near public transportation. Morning and afternoon hours are available.

These programs are offered in collaboration with the Buck County Workforce Investment Board. The BC-WIB is a business-led board that provides the leadership and resources necessary to encourage a flourishing workforce and companywide economic well-being. The organization stems from the Workforce Investment Act and other grant-funded programs and its mission is to provide the leadership necessary to develop, direct and promote a comprehensive network of resources and services for area businesses as well as adults and youth looking for employment.

“This group has been targeted because of its history of high unemployment,” stated Ron Spangler, Youth Operations Manager. “Our goal is to coach, train and place out-of-school youth into entry level high-growth, high-demand occupations,” he explained.
