Youth Employment Services

Maricopa County’s Youth Workforce Program assists out of school or out of work young adults ages 16-24 in furthering their education or finding employment. Enrolled youth participate in a year round program where they receive tools to become successful, productive citizens.

ARIZONA@WORK: Maricopa County partners with community agencies to offer a wide variety of services to enrolled youth. Our Youth Career Guidance Specialists help each participant chart his or her own course. We can customize a plan to help you succeed in finding employment, education or training – all at no cost.

To determine eligibility, apply for the program or for more information please send us an e-mail.
