Youth Program


Guilford County, NC – On Monday, July 31, 2017, a new program for young adults with ages that range from 16-24 was launched. The NCWorks NextGen Program is one of the Programs featured at NCWorks Career Centers in Guilford County, and will replace the INSPIRE Young Adult Workforce Preparation Program.

Young adults who want to attend college, earn a credential, or just want a rewarding career and a better life for themselves, can participate in the Program. With services like: Tutoring/Study Skills, Comprehensive Career Counseling, Mentoring, Career Exploration, Entrepreneurship/Business Skills, Job Training, Paid or Unpaid Internships and more, young adults are sure to succeed!

Although eligibility and availability for NextGen must be determined, the NCWorks Career Center has proven that when it comes to providing workforce development assistance, no matter what a person’s background looks like, help is available in one or more departments within the Center. If an applicant is either not eligible or on the waiting list for NextGen, he or she may receive assistance in one or more of three functional areas: Talent Engagement, Talent Development, and Employment Solutions. More details about these functional areas can be found by visiting the following link:
