We are proud to be affiliated with these organizations.
Gallia County Department of Job and Family Service (GCDJFS) has the opportunity to apply for a Youth Apprenticeship Readiness Grant targeting 16-24 year-olds. We are reaching out to several employers to see if they would be interested in partnering with GCDJFS in such an apprenticeship. The RAP will be over a 4 year period with the possibility to allow 2-4 participants each year to participate.
Our focus is to work with the 16-18 years by doing summer work experience and then partnering with employers to do the Apprenticeship for the 19-24 years (18 years old if they have graduated). The reimbursement percentage would be negotiated once we are approved for the grant and then GCDJFS will provide wrap-around services for the participant, which could include any equipment needed to perform the job duties, helping with transportation issues, etc.
