Youth One Stop


Attain a Degree or Certificate 

High School Diploma or High School Equivalency Diploma  

Youth One Stop Case Managers work one on one with youth who need to attain a High School Diploma or a High School Equivalency Diploma. Youth attend tutoring and homework assistance sessions to help meet their goals and graduate high school or pass the HSE exam. Case Managers also work closely with high school staff to create success plans for students who might be struggling or are at risk of dropping out.

Attain a degree or certificate

The Youth One Stop can help youth interested in acquiring a degree or certificate.  Utilizing NYS Career Zone, program staff work one-to-one with youth to find a career interest in a demand occupation. The staff at the Youth One Stop provide support and mentoring to assist youth with obstacles and hurtles as they begin the journey to self-sufficiency. Scholarships are available on a limited basis, based on the needs of the participant and program funding.   

 Career Pathways 

An element of Youth One Stop programing is Career Pathways. Youth gain understanding of the opportunities for advancement within an industry sector . Career Pathways are a roadmap to the future.  Youth select a starting point and then at any time can choose to “drive” to a new destination.

Here is an example. Let’s say that you want to work in health care and would ultimately like to be a Nurse Practitioner. A Nurse Practitioner (NP) is a registered nurse (RN) with advanced training in diagnosing and treating illness. Nurse Practitioners prescribe medications, treat illness, and administer physical exams. NPs differ from physicians in that they focus on prevention, wellness, and education.(Now remember you can start at any point, you don't have to start in CNA training, you can enroll immediately in LPN training.)
