ABOUT YOUNG ADULT WORKERS

Empowering our Young Adult Workers for success

The purpose of young adult worker services in Oswego County is to provide information to eligible youth on the array of services available through the One-Stop Center and the local community; to provide appropriate referrals and services to meet their needs; and to enable them to achieve academic and employment success.

Eligible participants will receive an objective assessment to examine academic and occupational skill levels and individual service needs. An individual service plan that identifies a career goal incorporating the assessment results will be completed for each participant.
