BAYVIEW YMCA WORKFORCE DEVELOPMENT & TRANSITIONAL AGE YOUTH PROGRAM
The Bayview YMCA Workforce Development & Transitional Age Youth Program helps job seekers transition to become self-sufficient adults by providing workshops and case-management through strength based, restorative approaches. We combine case management with wrap around services and support to provide members with the skills and resiliency they need to succeed.
We serve job seekers looking for employment in all areas and specialize in 3 fast growing industries of employment; culinary and hospitality, tech., and health and wellness. By providing on site vocational learning services and referrals to partnering training agencies we work to connect job seekers with the skills and/ or placement needed to obtain and retain employment.
