What programs does Youth Services offer?

Youth Services – Special Program

The Workforce Innovation Opportunity Act (WIOA) is a federally funded program designed to assist individuals with employment barriers to attain their career and educational goals. JobTrain is a subcontractor for NOVA and is the Youth WIOA provider for San Mateo County.  JobTrain provides youth who meet WIOA criteria with personalized support services tailored to their need.   Youth are eligible for WIOA services who are 17-24 years old; out-of-school (graduate or drop out); residing in San Mateo County, Palo Alto, Mountain View, or Los Altos; have work verification;  and have WIOA identified barrier to employment (determined by youth counselor).

“Coming to JobTrain gave me a solid foundation from where I was able to build my life and guide me towards a bright future. I was able to go from working long hours in retail without a goal in sight to aspiring for higher education and supporting myself with a sustainable job in medical assisting.”
