Preparing Lebanon Youth for Career Success - Info. for Youth

Are you ready for your future?

Get ready for a great career! Finding the path to your future can be challenging, and we're here to help you with free support, training, and guidance to meet your goals.

 

The employment and training programs offer youth in Lebanon County an opportunity to learn, grow and establish a career path. The goal of this program is to provide education, training and skill development so that your employment goals can be reached.

How can we help you?

Are you 14-18 years old and in school?

We'll help you develop important job skills, receive on-the-job support, and get real work experience - that's paid! Our 5-6 week summer work program and weeklong summer camps at Harrisburg University will set you on the path to success. 

Are you 16-24 years old and out of school?

We're here to support you as you set and achieve your career goals. Paid internships, help finding a job, and support with what you need to succeed at work are all part of our range of services and supports tailored to your needs. Plus, we partner with many Lebanon businesses, school districts, and colleges to help you on your way to career success!
