Youth Services


Contact the Youth Counselors for more information on these services.

Our Youth Services are designed especially for young adults ages 16-24.

One of the strongest tools that we offer is the Texas Workforce Commission's Job-Matching database, WorkInTexas.com . In addition to personalized job matching, WorkInTexas.com helps you build a resumé, provides access to career tools, and works as your job search agent.

The website Texas Reality Check, like it's name implies, is a tool that allows you determine, realistically, how much income you need to live the life-style that you desire. It can be an eye-opener as you adjust values and juggle lifestyle choices.
