Alternative Education

Kern Youth @ Work

Kern Youth @ Work’s priority is to ensure at-risk students receive their Standard High School Diploma and are prepared for Kern County’s workforce. We are a collaborative partnership that provides year-round academic & career pathway advisory as well as certificated job skill training opportunities. Both staff and volunteers endeavor to help young adults become self-reliant, productive community members who are effectual forward thinkers.

We represent an organization of private and public partners, the JobsPlus! Program, Kern YouthBuild Program, and Kern County Probation’s Career Development Academy. To find out more about these programs simply click on the corresponding links in the right hand column.
