The transition to the adult world can be overwhelming. Many of these young adults lack the basic skills, experience, and resources essential for successful adulthood. In many cases, they are left to navigate the range of potential support, educational, and career-related services and opportunities available to them alone as they prepare for independent living.

Youth Networked Services connect youth to educational and career-related opportunities as they prepare for the next stage of independence. Youth will gain access to Work Readiness Workshops, paid work experience, access to community resources, post-secondary education enrollment, vocational training, supported services, and cash incentives for program completion.

Youth Networked Services (YNS) provides educational and employment support to youth ages 16-24 that are seeking opportunities and meet Workforce Innovation Opportunity Act (WIOA) eligibility requirements.
