Background. This report describes initial findings for Youth Offender Demonstration projects designed to assist youth at risk of criminal involvement, youth offenders, and gang members ages 14 through 24 into long-term employment through the provision of employment and training services. It also identifies and describes promising approaches underway in several Youth Offender Demonstration Projects that may lead to a decisive organizational model that might be exportable to other local areas. The report discusses advanced ways to help youth offenders get jobs by linking juvenile justice and youth development, training, and labor exchange activities with local One-Stop centers.
