The Larimer County Workforce Center’s YouthLINK program is dedicated to serving youth ages 16-21 who are living in poverty and also facing barriers to finding and/or keeping employment. Many participants enter this program lacking a high school diploma or a GED. These participants work incredibly hard with a Youth Career Specialist to accomplish their educational and career goals.
The Larimer County Workforce Center’s YouthLINK program is hosting a Recognition Night for YouthLINK participants who have recently earned their GED. This bi-annual event will feature over twenty-five graduates to be recognized at the ceremony. Please join us as we congratulate the graduates on all of their hard work and determination!

The Larimer County Workforce Center is currently offering two summer programs geared towards preparing Larimer County youth for the world of employment and future careers!
The Summer Youth Employment Program is looking for youth candidates, ages 16-18, to be considered by local businesses for part-time employment opportunities. Youth candidates who participate will complete the Larimer County Workforce Center job readiness workshops and a final employment consultation with an Employment Specialist. The workshop curriculum provides necessary tools to begin and continue successfully in the workplace while the one-on-one employment consultation will review the candidate’s job search portfolio and identify specific positions of interest.
