• Description

Young people, ages 16 to 24, can face significant barriers to employment once they cross paths with the juvenile or criminal legal system. Accessing supportive services in a community-based setting can help.

This report summarizes findings from an exploratory study of community-based workforce development programs. The study involved both a national survey and a series of follow-up interviews with staff members who work with youth who have been adjudicated for or convicted of serious offenses.
