With programs in the summer and year-round, WorkReady provides young people career-connected education designed to create long-lasting relationships while gaining the critical 21st century skills that are foundational to entering the workforce. WorkReady addresses the importance of youth employment by providing young people an opportunity to learn and bringing employers new energy, creativity, comfort with technology and eagerness to learn.
WorkReady's continuum of models connect our city's young people to opportunity. PYN works to leverage funding through blended private and public investments that financially support a young person's work experience. Through a competitive procurement process, WorkReady's network of youth serving-organizations (providers) receive administrative and financial support to coordinate with worksites where young people receive a quality work experience. Businesses and organizations throughout the region can also sponsor and/or hire young people to create meaningful experiences, while shaping the future workforce of our city.
