Workforce Development Information

2017 Information for Employers on Work Experience Program

Work Experience Youth are employed for the duration of the summer. They learn how to excel at a job interview, complete a job application, write a resume, and maintain a job. Youth also receive assistance on finding a job in their local community.

Youth who are accepted into the program will also receive case management services in order to help them reach academic goals of high school graduation or GED. Youth will be case managed until they achieve this goal and will receive follow up services for a year afterwards.

Additionally, we offer Work Experience classes for youth who are wanting to learn basic job hunting skills, such as how to complete a resume, mock job interviews, where to find a job, and other basic skills. Contact the Program Director for the next class.

Note: Unfortunately at this time we are unable to accept new youth into this program for 2015. Please refer our sections under ‘Washoe Face Forward’ or ‘Washoe Youth Build’ programs for further work experience opportunities for youth.
