Regional Partnership WDB provides information and referrals about a number of services designed to help young people complete high school, receive a GED, enroll in community college and/or receive training necessary for a good job. Our NCWorks Career Center Staff members can provide one-on-one counseling to help you map out a plan for getting your high school diploma and any additional education or occupational skills training you need.

NCWorks Career Centers administer a multitude of workforce development and Career Pathway related programs and the oversight for these programs is established by the Regional Partnership WDB Youth Committee.

Tutoring, study skills training and instruction leading to secondary school completion including dropout prevention strategies. A recognized certificate of attendance for remedial assistance is also offered on an individualized basis.

Alternative secondary school offerings provide instruction leading to high school diploma or the equivalent such as a GED. Instruction may be provided outside of the traditional school setting and programs will meet all applicable state and local educational standards.

Employment Services

Work experiences are planned, structured learning experiences that take place in a workplace for a specified period of time. They may be paid, or unpaid.
