CareerPoint PPSC assists young people in Sonoma and Marin Counties on the road from adolescence to adulthood. Whether you are seeking your first entry-level job, or the education and training needed for a lifelong career, we can help you develop and achieve your goals. Keep up to date on leads and opportunities with our social media and calendar, drop in to one of our “open office” afternoons for resume workshopping, or make an appointment to develop and achieve the goals you need to succeed.

Connect with @CareerPointPPSC on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Snapchat for up-to-the-minute job leads, educational opportunities, and more.

Sonoma County Youth Ecology Corps

The Sonoma County Youth Ecology Corps (SCYEC) provides young adults with meaningful, paid work experience, environmental education, and the opportunity to explore careers and develop work-readiness skills. Youth contribute to their community while completing environmental and conservation-related projects or by working with local non-profit organizations.  You can see the crews in Petaluma at work at our Petaluma Bounty Farm this summer.

SCYEC is the recipient of the California State Association of Counties (CSAC) 2014 Challenge Award. Challenge awards recognize the innovative and creative spirit of California county governments.  We are proud of our partners all over the county who help provide this opportunity  for the youth of Petaluma and Sonoma County.  View this video made as part of the Challenge Award.
