This year, WorkReady programs have been redesigned to be digital experiences. Participants will be paid through incentives with the opportunity to earn up to $595 over the course of the program. Programs are on rolling start from June 22.

If there is an opportunity for in-person experiences, additional enrollment documents may be needed at a later date.

WorkReady Youth

What is Enrollment?


Enrollment is the second step of the WorkReady process. Youth complete and sign required paperwork along with submitting copies/pictures of vital documents.

Enrollment is by invitation only. Due to COVID-19 stay-at-home orders, enrollment sessions have been moved to an electronic process with the ability to be completed on a mobile device or computer. A secure folder will be shared with each individual submitting enrollment packets. Be sure to actively check your email.

Instructions for enrollment

A parent must submit a request for an application and instructions will be sent via email.
