YAGC Services Banner

The Young Adult Guidance Center focuses on non-residential intervention, prevention, and educational/training offerings. Our Supportive Services Outreach Initiative provides a wide-range of supportive services for disadvantaged young people, most of which are homeless, at-risk of homelessness, or re-entering society after being released from jail or prison. These young people usually lack education, stable employment, and support systems. We work these youth to assess their needs and develop tailored service plans to help them achieve success.

Our specific services include:

  • educational/vocational training assistance
  • employment skills
  • training and job placement assistance
  • mental health/substance abuse counseling/treatment
  • physical health care
  • life and parenting skills training
  • direct client assistance
  • mentoring, and other supportive services all facilitated by intensive case
    management

We stress education, employment, self-discipline, and counseling to help participants improve their present circumstances. Services are provided in-house by YAGC staff or via referral with collaborative partners.

Tips On Preparing For A Job Interview!

  • Dress the part! Always dress professionally for job interviews or meetings with potential employers.
  • Know your audience! Interviews are a two-way experience. It is important that you research the company you are interviewing with to make sure the job will be a good fit.
  • Be prepared! Take time to prepare for your interview ahead of time by updating your resume and choosing questions that you would like to ask the employer.
  • Practice makes perfect! The best way to get rid of interview jitters is to practice answering interview questions. You can do this by looking up interview questions or asking someone to interview you for practice.
