Montgomery County In-School Program PDF Print E-mail

MMYC’s Montgomery County program serves in-school students from 16-18 years old that are attending target schools in Montgomery County. We seek to support academic attendance and performance, and build employment and career skills. The in school component provides services in four areas: Academic Enrichment, Job Skills/Readiness, Family Support and At-Risk Behavior reduction.

The program is funded by the Montgomery County Department of Economic Development’s Workforce Services Division through the Workforce Investment Act. Other supporters include the Montgomery County Department of Health and Human Services, the Montgomery County Community Foundation, the Mead Family Foundation, and the CitiFoundation

The Workforce Investment In-School Program engages low-income high school juniors and seniors to help them successfully transition to higher education and the world of work.

The program accomplishes this by meeting individually with students and hosting bi-weekly workshops to provide support with:

  • College applications
  • Scholarship and grant applications
  • Career exploration
  • One-on-one assistance to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and application fee waivers through a partnership with the University of Maryland Educational Opportunities Center.

During the summer, students can participate in a paid internship related to their career interests. Students receive job readiness training before and during the program to prepare and support students as they explore the world of work.

The Job Readiness Training curriculum covers:

  • Resume and cover letter writing
  • Interviewing skills
  • Goal setting
  • Life skills
  • Time management
  • Communication
  • Conflict resolution
  • Self-esteem
