Operation MONEY - The WIOA Program at CRYROP

Operation MONEY is an employment program designed for out-of-school young adults between the ages of 17 - 24 to provide individualized attention and financial support to develop and jumpstart career plans. We focus on career planning, employability and occupational skills training, work experience and leadership development.

Participation in program activities is expected and necessary to be successful, but Operation MONEY is not a class that you attend every day like school. Instead, you will work one-on-one with an Employment Placement Specialist to develop career and personal goals, participate in employment and personal development workshops and attend special events designed to promote employment and education.

The Operation MONEY program provides:
  • Career exploration and planning
  • Work readiness and employability preparation
  • Paid work experience and incentives - about $2,000 for each participant!
  • Personalized assistance with employment application and interviewing strategies
  • Interview/work clothing, safety equipment, bus passes or gas cards
  • Introduction to Entrepreneurship
  • Financial planning for college occupational training
  • Leadership development - workshops, peer mentors, college visits, conferences
  • GED, HiSET and high school diploma completion is available, if needed
  • And much more!
The Operation MONEY team works closely with local businesses to provide practical, meaningful paid work experience…that often leads to permanent job offers!
