Youth Programs

The Youth Program provides experience and academic enrichment activities. Participants have services available to assist them in areas such as developing work maturity skills, writing a resume and learning how to interview for a job, problem solving skills and counseling and support services.
 

Due to changes in federal law and funding reductions; we regret that we are unable to serve younger youth. Moving forward the youth programs will focus on youth and young adults 17 to 24 years of age.  Priority of Service for the Scott County Youth Programs can also be found on the first page of the application.
 
YEAR-ROUND  
Priority of service is given to youth 17 to 24 years old in the Year Round Activities.  These programs may involve short term training, limited internship/work experience and support services.
    

SUMMER 

The Scott County Summer Youth Program focuses on low income 17 to 24 year old youth. During the summer, basic academic skills can be improved while earning school credit with the YouthBuild Program. The Summer Program offers community service jobs in which the youth can get work-based knowledge while earning a paycheck.
