DOL Face Forward Grants to Help Juvenile Offenders Obtain Jobs
Posted by Alexandra Kielty - On March 21, 2014 (EST)
The U.S. Department of Labor today announced the availability of approximately $44 million in grants through the Face Forward program to provide work-based learning opportunities and support services for youth ages 14 to 24 who have been through the juvenile justice system.
The Face Forward grant program is designed to help participants move forward into the future by combining the most promising workforce and juvenile justice strategies available. These grants will offer organizations the opportunity to develop programs that address this issue by helping youth obtain education and industry-recognized credentials in high-demand occupations and industries. The grants will also specifically help youth evade the stigma of having a juvenile record through the use of diversion or record expungement strategies.
