Day One

Career credentialing programming offers young adults, ages 18-24, short-term training tied to a career, industry-recognized credentials, and a paid work experience that will put them on a path to economic self-sufficiency.


The Day One program is designed for young adults 17-24 who have graduated high school or earned a GED, are not enrolled in college, and who are under- or unemployed. Young adults gain skills through intensive job readiness training, mock interviews, resume writing and financial literacy training.

Participants enter training to earn an industry-recognized credential and to receive an internship and job in their selected career pathway. Each young adult has a team of individuals who help them through the process, including a Case Manager and Employment Specialist.

Current career pathways include: Information Technology, Healthcare, Commercial Truck Driver/CDL, Customer Care, CNC Machinist/Technology.
