Youth

Golden Sierra prepares young people for the 21st Century workforce.

Are you facing challenges in achieving your goals? Are you feeling stuck? Don’t know what to do next? Need help staying in school, getting your GED, or transitioning to college? Are you applying to jobs, but finding you don’t have enough experience? Our youth counselors can help you figure out a plan.

We provide on-going support, resources, and guidance to help you get an education and into a career. Contact your local center to get started.

All our services are free, including:

  • Tutoring, study skills, and dropout prevention
  • Alternative school options
  • Paid work experience and internships
  • Career exploration and job skill training
  • Adult mentoring, guidance and counseling

The program welcomes all youth and young adults ages 16-24 who need some additional assistance. However, you may be eligible for specialized services if you:

  • Are part of a low income family
  • Have been in the foster system
  • Dropped out of school
  • Have been convicted of a crime
  • Are pregnant or have children
  • Have a disability

Golden Sierra Job Training Agency has been so wonderful. My grandson received so much help: he was able to study for his GED, and get a part-time job with an employer who would work with is less-than-perfect background. He became a changed person. He now would like to attend college.
