Chicago is in crisis, struggling with high levels of youth violence, homicides and an unacceptable number of youth who are “disconnected” – either unemployed, out-of-school, or both. In response, Skills has launched a comprehensive initiative, Beyond the Diploma: Skills’ Demand-Driven Approach to Youth Employment.
Skills has launched a comprehensive initiative that includes three programmatic models focused on applying demand-driven job solutions for youth, enhanced with supports, to maximize job placements for Chicago’s high school students, opportunity youth, and college graduates.
In this program, Skills embeds our job placement expertise and staff within a high school to provide the schools and their students with immediate access to Job Readiness expertise as well as linkages to employment with our existing business clients and new businesses we identify.
