Community youth programs. Most cities, towns, or communities have programs to help young adults finish school, find a job, or solve other issues. They can be a great place to get connected to opportunities. Ask about programs in your area at school, an American Job Center, or social service providers.
Your teachers, counselors, caseworker, or other school staff. If you're a student, ask a teacher or counselor for help—or, ask them to recommend another helper.
Friends or family. If you need help with a specific issue, ask the people you already know if they can recommend someone you can talk to. If you're a member of a religious group, ask there. If you have a job, ask your boss or co-workers. If you already have a caseworker, ask them.
