Community Action Youth & Workforce Development Programs

Youth & Workforce Development Programs provides free youth development programs for those ages 14-24 in Hampshire County, Franklin County, and the North Quabbin region. We help young people build the skills, resources, and resilience to overcome barriers and be successful in adolescence and adult life.

Regarding COVID-19

Due to concerns around the COVID-19 virus and directives from the State of Massachusetts, Community Action Youth & Workforce Development Program continues to provide services remotely. All individual services are being provided virtually.

To reach us, send an email, or call (413) 834-2169 and we will get back to you soon. 

We hope everyone is staying safe and healthy during this challenging time!

How to get involved

Enrollment for all of our groups and programming happens on a rolling basis. Most programs have spaces open and opportunities to get involved right now! If a current session is full, we are happy to put you on our wait list for the next open session.*

*YouthWorks, LEAD and WIOA have more intensive application processes, beginning with an informational interview to learn more about the program and decide if it is a good fit.
