El Paso teens and young adults get the opportunity to participate in 18-month work program

EL PASO, Texas - The city of El Paso was chosen by the National League of Cities (NLC) to take part in a work program for 16-24-year-olds in the region. In particular, the work cohort is aimed at those who are not currently working or going to school.

The age group amounts to about 14,800 of the local population, which in turn is about 12.9% of the total population in El Paso. The purpose of the cohort is to get those who are not involved with any type of schooling or work to get back into that type of lifestyle with an 18-month-long technical assistance program.

On Thursday, the City of El Paso, Workforce Solutions Borderplex, Emergence Health Network, and a few other organizations will hold a meeting at the Blue Flame Building at 3 PM to talk more about this upcoming program.
