RMCEP provides a year-round comprehensive set of services for youth who are age 14 – 24.  The goal of this program is to work closely with each youth to provide effective learning environments linking education and employment as we guide them through career exploration, the development of a career plan, and leadership opportunities.

Elements of the WIOA Youth Program include:

  • Comprehensive career-related guidance and planning;
  • Employment opportunities linked to academic and occupational learning;
  • Paid and unpaid work experience;
  • Occupational skills training;
  • Alternative secondary school options to complete high school;
  • Tutoring, study skills training, instruction leading to secondary school completion, including dropout prevention strategies;
  • Leadership development opportunities;
  • Mentoring;
  • Supportive services (financial assistance with certain costs related to gaining employment or completing an educational goal);
  • Follow-up services
