The goal of JVS' youth programs is to prepare at-risk young people for productive lives by training them to be job ready and assisting with their educational and career paths.
We provide the expert guidance, support and resources they need to become self-sufficient through job readiness training, unpaid as well as subsidized internships, work experience opportunities, plus job search and placement assistance.
A JVS Youth Client Experience
Jose came to JVS from a local high school. He was eager for a chance to work, and after being waitlisted, enrolled in Summer Youth Employment Program. He was placed at the West Hollywood WorkSource Center and rose to every challenge, including a surprise opportunity to speak at the program graduation. Without preparation, he delivered a speech about his personal growth.
Santa Monica Community Youth Program provides career-planning services, job placement assistance and work experience opportunities to youth ages 16 to 24. Details
