Congratulations! You’ve been accepted!
The month of May is an exciting time for many
of our Nation’s youth as they make decisions about their education and training
Many of us have the privilege of working with
young people to help them plan their future.
This task has been exciting and challenging all at the same time. There
are so many choices and minds can change so many times.
We even work to help them fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) forms and find funding for post-secondary opportunities.
Now that all of your hard work has paid off, why
don’t you share with us the
educational, training or placement options your youth program participants will
Will they be attending a Technical
Training School, Community
College, 4-Year College or University; serving
in our a branch of our Nation’s Military;
participating in a Registered
Apprenticeship; obtaining an Industry-Recognized
Credential or Certification;
or joining Job Corps or a YouthBuild program?
We want to know what they'll be studying and how your program helped them achieve their goals.
It's your turn to brag a bit- We want to hear from you!

Thanks Maisha, what is the best URL to send out RExO grantees? We would like very much to ask them to contribute.
Hi - new to this group & up to my elbows providing transition services to youth in public education 14-26 yrs of age. Looking for some insight or resource on the following:
Work Based Learning / Work Experience: We are putting our students out into the community in rotating locations to explore careers, local business, skills, etc. Love the program and the students are getting a TON out of it.
Question: who or what has the liability if a child is injured when they are out participating? Would it be the general liability of the company? The school? Nothing has happened - yet. I'm concerned about this - and certainly taking all precautions to ensure a safe environment. How should state's be handling this? To complicate this, I know that Workers' comp rules are different among states! HELP!!
Hello. We have procured a temporary service (GoodTemps through Goodwill) in our region. Our local employers or providers are not required to payroll them, which can be time consuming and the liability for any potential injury is on the temp service. Temp service is also better equipped to deal with potential issues--process in place if an injury does occur. It will increase your costs for paid WE usually 20-30%, but it is worth it. It will also eliminate the youth from applying for and receiving unemployment from the participating employers. In the past we have also used the process for TANF participants. Those participants that stand out also have the ability to be placed through the temp service at a potential full time job. Making a semi-transitional job program.
