Urban Youth Empowerment Program (UYEP)

UYEP, funded by the U.S. Department of Labor, provides support and services for youth to aid them in entering the workforce. Youth who were involved in the juvenile justice system at age 14 or above are eligible to participate in this program. UYEP provides a number of services to youth, including case management, restorative justice workshops, education, mentoring, internships, and job training. Participants are also involved in service-learning projects, which combine community service with classroom learning.
