Youth Resources

These links provide a wide range of resources, tools and guidance to assist young individuals to reach their full potential. These resources work to place the power of information into the hands of youth and those who guide them in successfully navigating into adulthood amidst a global knowledge economy.

Face it – the real world can be overwhelming for today’s youth.

Balancing work, friends, family, money… Sometimes it’s a wonder that you’re staying afloat. And when your job – if you even have one – barely pays enough to make ends meet, the real world may be more than you signed up for.

Maybe it’s time to take a step back and ask yourself: Is this really what I want? Can I be happier doing something else? Do I have any other options?

CareerSource Pinellas is here to help find a career path that’s right for you. 

Because it knows that not every career journey is the same. For some youth, hands-on training and a career in trades may sound better than going back to school or applying to college. For others, internships might be a necessity, but finding one isn’t always easy.  Maybe you’re not even sure where to start when you think about beginning a career.  That’s okay!
