Looking for a job?
Pima County

All youth coming from low-income households should call Pima County ONE STOP's main number at 520.798.0500 and ask to schedule a WIA eligibility interview. If they are eligible for the program (income-based eligibility), they receive the highest level of assistance, which includes one-on-one sessions with a Workforce Development Specialist; individualized employment plan; job search assistance; job search, resume and other free workshops; opportunity to apply for post-secondary tuition assistance; and other services.

Youth ages 16-21 who are "job ready" and score at least at the 7th grade level on a basic education assessment that is administered can apply for the Pledge-A-Job program which matches youth with local entry-level positions; however, at this time we only have a part-time employee working on the program and have been inundated with applications so there is a rather long wait for assistance. Also, the program does not offer any additional services.

Youth can apply at www.pima.gov/CED/CS/OneStop/documents/YouthEmploymentApplication_000.doc
then call 520.798.0519 to schedule the assessment test.

SELF Menus
SELF is offered each week on Friday's during Badger Power Hour (10:21-11:21am). While we do prioritize student academic success and encourage students failing classes to use this time to get extra support from their teachers, we also recognize that academic mentoring, community building, socio-emotional skills, and setting career goals all serve to help students feel motivated, inspired, and connected at school.
