New Brief Highlights What State Correctional Agencies Are Doing to Prepare Youth for Employment 

On Track: How Well Are States Preparing Youth in the Juvenile Justice System for Employment? answers three key questions on state-level workforce development and career and technical education (CTE) services offered in juvenile justice systems:

  • What workforce development services are provided to incarcerated youth in facilities and when they return to the community, and how are these services integrated into case and reentry planning?
  • Are juvenile justice agencies partnering with workforce development agencies, educational entities, and employers to promote incarcerated youth’s career readiness and help youth to obtain meaningful employment in the community?
  • What data are collected and reported on workforce development service provision, employment, and related youth outcomes?

Using this data, the brief highlights key national trends and ways in which states can strengthen their systems to meet best practice and improve results for youth reentering the community and seeking long-term success in the workforce.
