Attracting individuals to work in a healthcare profession


The Young Professionals Program is an initiative at every local Michigan Works! agency in the state of Michigan. Young Professionals supports underrepresented young adults (ages 14-24) to help obtain employment by exposing them to multiple career and educational opportunities, such as entering a Registered Apprenticeship program, earning a short-term training certificate and obtaining work experience. The career and educational opportunities include those in healthcare, as those are high-skill and in-demand jobs.
