COVID-19 Coronavirus Updates and Guidance

The County is taking a number of actions to keep residents safe and minimize the spread of COVID-19. Find status information for County operations and services.

Youth Services

To achieve success in today’s competitive economy requires young adults to have the education, technical skills, work experience and workplace conduct employers expect. Young people—especially those who face challenges such as homelessness, poverty or disabilities—often need help to achieve post-secondary education and career employment. Through collaboration with a variety of organizations, schools and government agencies, we partner with efforts aimed at increasing and enhancing opportunities for teens and young adults.

The Youth Services Program engages eligible young people between the ages of 14 and 24 who are in school, have graduated or dropped out of high school by providing valuable education, training, counseling and work-based learning opportunities. To find out more about the services we provide email

Summer Youth Employment Program

In light of the current mandates due to COVID-19, we are currently exploring contingency options for the summer. For updates visit Summer Youth Employment Program.
