Finding your first job is hard – but we can help! If you are 16-24 years old, and you’ve never worked before, or you don’t have much experience, our Young Adult Opportunity Program is the perfect place to start building your resume and filling your wallet.
Montgomery County’s Young Adult Opportunity Program team will guide you on your path to independence and self-sufficiency by helping you develop your educational and employment goals. A great way to start exploring career options is by assessing your strengths and interests. Our counselors will talk you through the process and help you understand which job skills are necessary to land the position you want.
In addition to career coaching and counseling, we provide job readiness training, which can make you more valuable to your new boss. And, don’t underestimate the power of volunteer work or internships—even unpaid experiences can lead to employment.
Once a month the Young Adult Opportunity Program will host a Monthly Mingle event. This event is designed to expose youth to training options, job opportunities, supportive services, and inspirational community leaders. This is a casual event where games will be played, resources will be shared, and opportunities for employment and training will be given. All are invited to attend.
