WorkSource Cobb Launches BOSS

WorkSource Cobb is launching BOSS, a career pathway program targeted to young adults ages 16-24. Eligible Cobb County residents will have access to free education tuition, paid work experience opportunities, job readiness workshops, career counseling, and more.

Program participants can enter the program at any stage in their career development whether they need to earn a GED, obtain work experience, or are ready to gain education in their desired career. WorkSource Cobb staff support participants and help them achieve their goals through career coaching and incentives.

"The BOSS initiative asks young people to be BOLD by investing in themselves and applying for the program, be OPEN to opportunities presented, earn SKILLS to get the job they want, and finally be SUCCESSFUL. We want to empower young people today to take ownership of their futures like a boss," said Sonya Grant, Executive Director of WorkSource Cobb. "If they are willing to put in the work, we can help them achieve their goals and even earn money along the way." Participants can earn up to $8,500 while they participate in career development workshops, go on college and career tours, get their GED or high school diploma, attend skills training, intern through work experience, gain employment, enter college or join the military.

The program is offered to Cobb residents through the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act. Participants must meet eligibility requirements in order to receive services. Anyone interested can contact WorkSource Cobb BOSS program by calling 770-528-4300 or emailing
