    Shaping the Future of Our Youth

    The Dutchess County Youth One Stop provides youth with education through the HSE program, or an occupational skills training program.



    The Youth One Stop offers a unique program, which allows businesses to provide paid and unpaid work experiences within Dutchess County.

    Students gain experience by working with local businesses to provide job shadows. Job shadows are a great tool that allows youth to see the day-to-day responsibilities and ask questions. This opportunity to shadow lets the students see if they are really interested in that specific occupation.


    Youth One Stop works with businesses to provide transitional jobs. The transitional job program allows students to work in their preferred occupation while giving the business the opportunity to teach them what it is that they do. The program allows for 300 total paid hours over the course of 8 to 12 weeks. Some examples of a transitional job that youth have participated in are; EMT, Dental Assistant, HVAC, Activity Aid, and Culinary Arts. This is an easy pathway for our clients to obtain work experience. Being able to do a transitional job allows the students to build their resumes and gain professional references.


    Internships are offered to students that have either done occupational training or will be starting occupational training in the near future. This is a 60-hour paid program that gives the opportunity to practice what they have learned in the course.


    The goal is to see that students are dedicated to completing their work experience. They have to attend soft skills workshops provided by the Youth One Stop. The program covers all areas of professionalism so the students are prepared and ready for employment.
