Building the future of Montgomery County
The youth of today will be our community leaders tomorrow. That’s why the Montgomery County Commissioners have developed, and continually strengthen, programs for youth. Our programs support and prepare youth who are in school and those who are out of school with programs to improve skills and prepare for a successful career.
YouthWorks is a central part of a strategy to educate and improve the lives of young people, in-school students, from age 14 through graduation, in Montgomery County.
The work experience nurtures the growth of workplace skills, preparing our youth for successful careers. But YouthWorks goes beyond just work experience. We help students through and after graduation.
WIOA Youth prepares out-of-school youth between the ages of 16-24 for a successful transition to work, college, an apprenticeship, or military service. We’ll connect you with programs to build your skills, and we’ll connect you with a company to gain practical skills and develop relationships, all while earning a paycheck!
Male Leadership Academy and Female Leadership Academy are mentorship programs for young men and women between the ages of 14-16. Each participant is paired with a mentor who will help guide them as they grow into leaders.
The Youth Resource Center is the single stop for anyone between the ages of 14-24 who needs help. We can help you reach your educational, employment, and health goals.
