The MMYC Workforce program offers job skills and life skills training, job placement services, GED preparation, one-on-one tutoring and support services for out-of-school youth ages 16-24 residing in Montgomery County.

Youth without a high school diploma have the opportunity to take GED classes to prepare them for taking the "General Educational Development" exam. These classes focus on writing, reading, social studies, science, and math. Academic tutoring is also provided as needed. If a participant wishes to continue with school, the GED Instructor will help him/her identify and apply to an appropriate post-secondary academic program and complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

Alongside the GED classes, students receive job readiness training in preparation to enter the workforce as well as assistance searching for employment.

The Job Readiness Training curriculum covers:

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

In addition to Job Readiness Training students receive the following services:

  • Literacy/Numeracy Tutoring 
  • Case Management 
  • Job Placement 
  • Certification and/or Vocational Programs 
  • Leaders Like Me

Both in and out of school youth are eligible to participate in the summer internship program.
