Re-engaging youth is about creating opportunities for youth who are not working, and dropped out of high school to participate in their community through re-enrollment in education and employment.
The Y’s program for our Disconnected Youth offers these teens a chance to move forward, providing job training and other critical life skills to some of our most at-risk communities. Program components may vary due to our highly individualized case management, but may include: basic academic skills instruction, weekly college readiness, work-readiness, and life-skills workshops.
Youth who are high school dropouts will work with a case manager to achieving their GEDs or re-enroll in high school. Youth are given exposure to various employment opportunities and high growth careers, allowing youth to explore their interests and develop a goal plan that aligns with their aspirations.
