Education & Employability Program

The Youth Education & Employability Program provides employment/training services to youth, ages 19 - 21, who are in need of assistance in obtaining employment or further education. All services provided through this program are FREE. However, funding for post secondary education is available only to eligible youth based on assessed need.

Eligibility for funding for post secondary education/training is determined by the youth's income, unless they are still residing at their parents' residence in which case the parents' income would be used. If the youth has a disability only their income is counted. Income eligibility is based upon the Federal Poverty Guidelines.

Services are provided by Great Lakes Training and Development Corporation, which is located in the Sheboygan County Job Center. Funding for the Youth Education & Employability Program is provided through the Workforce Investment Act (WIA).
