Connections and the WIA offer both a youth-focused program and an adult program.
The youth program offers work experience, on-the-job training or vocational/technical training programs to youth age 17-21 who are low-income, dropout, homeless, runaway, parenting, foster youth, or involved in the court system.
The adult program serves people age 18 or older, those with disabilities, displaced homemakers, self-employed, unemployed, underemployed or dislocated workers, and offers a number of services such as vocational or technical training or on-the-job training programs.
In addition, Connections also provides assistance with career assessment, job search, resume preparation and interview assistance for youth and adults.
Those who cannot attend one of the informational sessions may visit the Connections One Stop Resource Center and ask to speak to a WIA staff member. The Connections One Stop Resource Center is located at 3047 Briw Road in Placerville and at 3368 Lake Tahoe Boulevard, Suite 202, in South Lake Tahoe. The offices are open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday-Friday.
