Youth Services

Success in today’s competitive economy requires young adults to have the education, technical skills, work experience and workplace conduct employers expect. But young people—especially those who face challenges such as homelessness, poverty or disabilities—often need a helping hand to get them on track toward post-secondary education and career ladder employment. That’s where Baltimore County’s youth workforce program is ready to help.

The Youth Services program engages eligible young people between the ages of 18 and 24 who have graduated or dropped out of high school and face barriers to employment. It helps them bridge the gaps by providing valuable education, training, counseling and work-based learning opportunities to achieve success.

Youth Partner Programs
