The Out-Of-School Program provides young people who are out of school and between the ages of 18-21 with career assessment, employability and occupational skill training, guidance, counseling and supportive services to prepare them for entry into employment or advanced training. An out of school student is defined as a school dropout, or either graduated from high school or holds a GED, but is basic skills deficient, unemployed or under-employed.
To assist out of school youth the YWC operates two targeted programs, the Construction Trades Pre-Apprenticeship and Nurse Assistant program. In addition, the YWC can enroll student in training courses to achieve their personalized career goal through the Center for Apprenticeship and Adult Training at New Horizons or through the Greater Peninsula One Stop system training providers.
