Improving Access to Career Pathways for Philadelphia’s Child Welfare and Juvenile Justice System Involved Youth

Juvenile Law CenterThis report from the Juvenile Law Center takes a focused look at the barriers to career pathways that system-involved youth encounter. Based on an in-depth needs assessment of the Philadelphia community, the report offers five strategies to improve access to career-focused programs and early work experiences for youth in the child welfare or juvenile justice system, including: improving access to vital documents and records; offering meaningful opportunities for career and technical education; connecting system-involved youth to disability services, including job-related services; expanding work experiences for youth in institutional placements; and reducing the collateral consequences of juvenile and criminal records.
