The Youth Workforce Advisory Board (YWAB) is comprised of young people from across the County, who advise MyCom and Ohio Means Jobs Cuyahoga County on issues related to “Opportunity Youth.” Opportunity Youth are young adults between the ages of 16 and 24 years of age, who are not working, in school, or connected to a training program. The goal is to determine why they are disconnected and how with help from available resources, we might connect them with opportunities to enrich their lives. The Focus groups are an opportunity to have an open discussion on the barriers, obstacles, and situations that have caused them to become disconnected. The focus groups are the first step of engagement. There is a preliminary conversation related to the expectations on both sides, the YWAB and the Young Adults on the process. Subsequently, we will host a focus group and provide a gift card to the participants of both sessions.

The first preliminary session will be held on Wednesday, December 9th at 6:00, with the Focus Group being held on Saturday, December 12th.
