Young Adult CareerSTEPS Program

About Young Adult CareerSTEPS Program

This RIHS service, which is funded by a grant through the Westmoreland-Fayette Workforce Investment Board, is for eligible young adults between the ages of 16 and 24. The services are free of charge. RIHS works closely with the Westmoreland-Fayette Workforce Investment Board (WIB) and Pennsylvania CareerLink to provide young adult education and training. Our CareerSTEPS program focuses on Young Adults– the term “Out-of-School Young Adult” means:

  • An eligible young adult who has dropped out of high school; or
  • An eligible young adult who has received a secondary school diploma or its equivalent but is deficient in basic skills, unemployed or underemployed.
  • An eligible young adult who has a barrier in one or more area (see Eligibility page).
Our services are community-based and are provided free of charge to eligible young adults between the ages of 16 and 24 who reside in Westmoreland and Fayette counties. Our CareerSTEPS Program focuses not only on education and employment, but also housing, financial, medical, behavioral health, socialization, support and goals. To learn more about the Young Adult CareerSTEPS Program, please visit our Locations page today to find the phone number for the nearest CareerLink office. For more information on Young Adult CareerSTEPS Program, check out our Eligibility page!
