Youth Crossroads Receives $180,000 Grant to Support Workforce Development

Youth Crossroads has been awarded a $180,000 grant from the State of Illinois’ Reimagining Public Safety Act to provide workforce development programs to youth (ages 15-24) who are most at-risk of being impacted by gun violence. The program targets youth who face significant barriers to employment because of prior academic achievement and life experiences. The program will offer introductory training in a variety of fields that can lead to good-paying jobs and meaningful careers or more advanced job training on-site or in college.
