Welcome to YCS365

Since its inception in 1999, Montgomery County Business Services' YouthWorks Program has provided Summer employment for in-school youth ages 14-18, who reside in Montgomery County.

When YouthWorks was first implemented, it served 25 youth participants. Since that time, the annual program has grown and served over 2,300 youth in partnership with over 500 businesses. In 2016, the Comprehensive Case Management and Employment Program (CCMEP) was launched. This program serves TANF & WIOA youth ages 16-24. In 2017, the Ohio State law was amended, creating a new CCMEP eligibility for youth ages 14-24.

As a result, Montgomery County YouthWorks Summer Employment Program is now Youth Career Services 365 (YCS365), a Comprehensive Case Management and Employment Program (CCMEP). In addition, Median and Above Income Youth are encouraged to apply as limited additional funding has been made available.

Why would youth be interested in YCS 365?

Through this program, youth will have the opportunity to participate in multiple work experience sessions based on their individual availability during the year (Summer Session, Fall and Winter Session).

Note: Participation in a previous Summer Session is required for the Fall and Winter Session.
