About US 

The mission of YouthWORKS is to equip every Richmond youth ages 14-24 with the knowledge and experience they’ll need to be successful in real-world work environments through work-based learning, financial literacy/work-readiness workshops and personalized one-on-one career counseling.

Services are participation based and may include:

  • Work Experience (WEX)
  • On-the-Job Training
  • Apprenticeship Training
  • Business/Industry Trips
  • Life Skills Workshops
  • Work Readiness workshops
  • Support Services 

YouthWORKS is part of the city's efforts to reduce violence by providing opportunity youth with Work Experience. The responsibility for training our youth & giving them the skills and opportunities they need to become productive citizens belongs to everyone.
