To help young adults jump start their careers in health care, Waterbury Youth Services recently launched Career Builders in Health. Supported by the Northeast Regional Workforce Investment Board, this new program is designed to help young adults 16-24 years of age earn a CNA certificate, secure a job, and receive on-going support to further their career in health care.
Waterbury Adult Education will be a leading partner in this program. Their curriculum will incorporate classroom learning with clinical experience in a local nursing home.
WYS has begun the recruitment phase of Career-Builders in Health, which is completely free of charge to eligible participants but limited to eight young adults. To qualify, participants must be 16 to 24 years old, not enrolled in an educational program and unemployed or underemployed in minimum-wage jobs.
