Youth Moving On

Youth Moving On

The YMO Job Developer offers classes weekly in hard and soft job skill development with pathways to employment so youth can access paid internships across various career paths. Our workforce development curriculum was created with the support of The Deutsch Foundation and the expertise of Columbia University’s School of Social Work to help youth to become valued workers and competitive in today’s labor market.  In addition, we have over 20 businesses and organizations that provide viable internships to our youth with options for long-term employment and livable wages throughout San Gabriel Valley and the greater Los Angeles area. This is a place where preparation and opportunity meet. YMO offers two types of paid internship programs: job readiness and career tracks. Youth receive training that increases their competency and makes them a greater asset to the workforce and themselves.  Unemployed or underemployed youth benefit from individual and group training, job matching, and a Job Development Specialist that talks directly to employers about the youth’s strengths and areas for development.
