Looking for help with your career, training, or job search plan?

Republished with permission of CareerOneStop.org  

You can find free support at a local youth employment program. You can find and contact a youth employment program near you, and ask about services they offer. You might be able to:

  • Get help looking for a summer or full-time job
  • Learn about high-school equivalency options
  • Find out about local training or education programs
  • Talk to a counselor about other career, training, or job search help

Some programs are located in American Job Centers, and some are independent community programs. Most offer services to anybody age 14 to 24, while others focus just on people dealing with homelessness, a criminal record, or other issues. Find out what services you might be eligible for by contacting a few programs near you.

Here are some other great places to find a person to talk to:

  • Your teachers, counselors, caseworker, or other school staff. If you’re a student, ask a teacher or counselor for help—or, ask them to recommend another helper.
  • Friends or family. If you need help with a specific issue, ask the people you already know if they can recommend someone you can talk to. If you’re a member of a religious group, ask there. If you have a job, ask your boss or co-workers. If you already have a caseworker, ask them.
  • Government and other agencies. Visit the State Resource Finder , select your state, and check the Job Search tab to find additional job search help in your state.
