TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Monday, July 3, will be a big day for the Pima County Youth Employment Center. It is when it will be completely moved into a new space at the Sentinel Building in downtown Tucson.

More space is one of the main reasons the group has moved to its new location. They will have 6,400 square feet, on the second floor of the building, to help youth from ages 14 to 24. This is twice the space the group had in its old building. 

The group says it works with youth that have barriers. The goal of the program is to get young adults work-ready, either through post-secondary education and training opportunities or other skills workshops.

There will be several other groups that will have access to the building, including the Tucson Urban League, Goodwill and Tucson Youth Development.
