Youth Work Programs

 

Overview
OYA provides several work experience opportunities for eligible youth in OYA custody.  Youth receive occupational safety training, vocational training, and hands on work experience in jobs that will lead to employment in the community upon release.   Work experiences include supervised work crews, assistants in various trades under the close supervision of skilled trade people, and specialized vocational programs aligned with emerging businesses and technologies. 
 
In addition to learning specific vocational skills, youth also learn the responsibilities of being prepared, productive and engaged in the job they are assigned.
