In an effort to better support mentoring programs in the northern Santa Clara County region, the NOVA Youth Committee recommended that the Youth Employment Program provide easily accessible tools that mentors can use while working with teens and young adults on their career development needs. We hope that our local mentor agencies and other community partners can apply these tools to better assist individuals as they explore careers, look for a job, successfully keep a job, and manage expenses.
