MSU's Today's Youth (TY) is a program designed for out-of-school youth aged 17-21. "Out-of-school" refers to a youth who is not currently attending high school or has already graduated from high school. TY provides services that assist youth in obtaining training or education and employment. The program offices are on the campus of Morehead State University, with funding provided through the Workforce Investment Act.
Tuition and career Assistance
TY may help with tuition assistance if other sources are not available to meet your full financial need. Assistance is provided for 2-year associate degree or training programs. Training may be approved at accredited state universities, community colleges, technical colleges, or specialized training schools.
Over the years, many students have successfully graduated from Morehead State University, Eastern Kentucky University, Rowan Technical College, and specialized schools such as Bailey's Barber College through the TY program.
Our students receive assistance in career planning and job searches, writing cover letters, resumes, interviewing techniques and moral support.
TY participants have the opportunity to do a 175-240-hour paid work experience related to their field of study. This is a great opportunity to make professional contacts and gain valuable experience for your resume. Our staff makes arrangements with the work site.
This program is funded with Department of Labor funds through the Workforce Investment Act, TENCO WIB, and the Buffalo Trace Area Development District. Counties served include Bath, Boyd, Bracken, Fleming, Greenup, Lewis, Mason, Montgomery, Robertson, and Rowan. TY is an Equal Opportunity program and auxiliary aids are available upon request to individuals with disabilities.
