YouthLink Employment and Education Services

YouthLink Employment and Education Services

YouthLink offers free, county-wide education and employment services providing educational support, work readiness training, case management, and paid and unpaid work experiences for youth ages 16-24. We connect youth to local employers for career exploration and employment opportunities. These comprehensive, year round services are designed to help youth stay in school, become work ready, and succeed in their transition to adulthood. This program is funded by the Sonoma County Human Services Department Employment & Training Division through the Workforce Investment Act and the Sonoma County Youth Ecology Corps.
