Finding your first job can be challenging. However, entering or re-entering the workforce after spending time in the justice system as a young person is even more difficult. Studies show that successful transition into the workforce is a positive step for both individuals and communities. 

There are many organizations, programs, and resources available to assist in this process. WorkforceGPS has two communities — YouthConnections and Reentry Employment Opportunities that focus on these type of programs and resources. We have also collected on this resource page numerous resources, policies, webinars and organizations that are available to assist you in providing these important services to youth and young adults coming out of the justice system and succeeding in the workplace.
