YCDC working with area youth in preparing for jobs

12 Jan 2015

According to the Center for American Progress, “The slow economic recovery has hit America’s youngest workers especially hard, and while the unemployment rate has fallen from its peak, more than 10 million young people under the age of 25 are not fully employed.” http://www.americanprogress.org/issues/economy/report/2013/06/05/65373/americas-10-million-unemployed-youth-spell-danger-for-future-economic-growth/ With over 22% of York County’s population being under the age of 18, the York County Development Commission takes the preparation of our youth for employment opportunities seriously.


The YCDC works with area schools, including York Public Schools, McCool Junction Schools, Heartland Public Schools, and Nebraska Lutheran School, in preparing students for the workforce. A couple of the opportunities we offer to area youth include National Manufacturing Day and Education Tours, the Youth Entrepreneurship Camp, and the Career Day, held in conjunction with the Tri-County area Job Fair.
