At risk young adults are our future and deserve our urgent attention and investment. We all have a stake in helping the next generation meaningfully connect to education, the economy and civic life. Many are looking for work that they can’t find, often because they lack the technical, communication and problem-solving skills required by today’s job market. And too many young people can’t come up with the money to pay for increasingly expensive post-secondary job training or college they need to get ahead. In fact, some of them enrolled in college, only to drop out because of financial constraints.
At risk youth struggled in school and lacked adequate supports to make it to graduation day. They include students who drop out of high school each year, and fall through the cracks. Others are youth involved in the justice system, teen parents or foster care children who “aged out” of the system without a clear plan for adulthood.
DETCCA partners with Workforce Solutions of Deep East Texas to assist youth with opportunities to obtain tutoring and GED testing. Individuals who are at least 16 years old, lack a high school credential or function below the high school level, or are unable to speak, read or write English, and are seeking career training, high school equivalency preparation or college. Workforce Solutions offices promote an increased opportunity for adult learners to transition to post-secondary education, training or employment.
