Since 1991, St. Joseph Youth Alliance has been leading the charge alongside community partners in Northwest Missouri to make sure local children and teens have the brightest futures possible. We are a membership-based 501c3 non-profit organization, and our members include local businesses, community members and fellow non-profit organizations who share our goals.
The initiatives coordinated by Youth Alliance are designed to:
Lead comprehensive community programs to help local teens live a life free of drugs and alcohol
Reduce the risks of childhood abuse and neglect for young children
Connect teens and young adults with powerful career mentoring and service opportunities
Help centers that serve young children provide the safest, most dynamic educational environments.
The Employment Specialist will be part of an innovative team of service providers and educational experts that will work collectively to create/implement an innovative program for young people in St. Joseph that face the greatest barriers to finding employment. The Employment Specialist will network in the private and public sector to develop career-building opportunities for youth. The Employment Specialist will also work to prepare youth participants for the workforce, while following-up to ensure their successful placement in post program employment or education.
