Out of School & Justice Involved at Little Village

The out-of-school youth for the WIOA program is for those who are between the ages of 16-24 and they are looking for full time employment or looking to go to trade school and then obtain full time employment. Must be out of school (whether it’s high school/college/trade/etc.), be low income (live in a high poverty area, receive SNAP benefits, working but fall in the low income status or have not worked in the past 6 months), and have a high school diploma or GED. If they don’t have a high school diploma or GED then the first step would be to obtain the GED (which the program will pay for) and then move forward with employment or training.

The participants that I work with on a daily basis are youth who are ages 16-24, who are out of school, and who are court-involved. The purpose for this program is to help young people who have been arrested and convicted or may have a case pending that is holding them back from completing their education and employment goals. Although there may be many barriers in a participants life, I focus on the justice involved youth who need assistance with finding employment that are background friendly. During this process I have assisted youth with court advocacy, referred youth to CGLA for expungement and sealing, and job readiness training."
