    Agency: Community Action Pioneer Valley



    Community Action's Youth Employment Readiness Programs help prepare youth to enter the workforce through skill-building, education, and individual employment support.

    The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) provides individualized support to help youth achieve their education and work goals. In addition to one-on-one career development and goal setting, youth receive job-readiness training, occupational training opportunities and paid work-based learning experiences. Interested youth, ages 17-24, should contact our office to discuss their eligibility.

    The Leadership Employment and Advocacy Development (LEAD) program provides employment-related services to DYS youth by offering comprehensive employability services including career readiness training and a subsidized employment experience. Youth are prepared to enter into the workforce through career readiness services by participating in subsidized work-based learning opportunities that allow participants to apply skills in work settings.

    Youth Support Services introduces you to our Youth Programs, what they provide and/or how they can support youth. Whether you are struggling with your transition to independence, need help navigating school or career goals, need help looking for jobs, exploring career options, setting future goals, applying for college, accessing housing, mental health or other common resources – the list is endless! Come and have an introductory meeting to find out the abundance of opportunities Youth Programs has to offer or call for an appointment today!

    Parents who are 24 and under and receive TAFDC may be eligible for Youth Program's Young Parent Program. Individuals accepted into this program will receive help with getting childcare vouchers, connections to playgroups and parenting support, HiSET preparation and tutoring, job-readiness training and career exploration, among other things. Contact our office to schedule an intake appointment, start weekly meetings, and plan activities to meet your hours.

    In the Northampton YouthWorks Program, youth ages 15-21 have the opportunity to engage in paid work-readiness training and internships while gaining real-world experience, job skills and access to growing career paths. Participants with an interest in IT careers are strongly encouraged to apply. See our website for details.
