SUCCESS FOR YOUNG PEOPLE - IN THE WORKPLACE AND IN LIFE.
Youth Job Center envisions a future where all young people have the support to build a meaningful career and fulfill their potential, and for the last 40 years the agency has worked to make that vision a reality.
Youth Job Center is a workforce development and job placement agency that prepares young people, ages 14-25, for success in the workplace and in life. We do this by providing our clients with Workforce Readiness Training, personalized career advising, job placement, and barrier reduction services. YJC’s offices are located in Chicago Heights, Englewood, Evanston, and Pilsen, which allows us to serve young adults throughout the Chicagoland area.
Youth Job Center knows that it is not enough to simply help youth find a job, we must provide them with the tools needed to be independently secure so that they can continue to grow and become lifelong learners.
OUR COMMITMENT TO EQUITY
As a collective, YJC ensures everyone has access to the same opportunities. YJC recognizes that barriers and advantages exist that may prevent full participation. Our goal is for YJC to proactively provide the tools and support required to ensure our clients, staff, and stakeholders have equal opportunity to professionally thrive, contribute, and develop regardless of their identity and actively call out and prevent policies and actions of discrimination and implicit bias.
