DOL Grants $26 Million to Juvenile Offender Training

With these grants, nonprofit organizations can help offenders between 16 and 24 years old.

The Department of Labor is lending a helping hand to offenders and granting about $26 million to improve the futures of youths in the juvenile justice system. Juveniles will have access to support services, training, and skills development.

These grants are part of a “Face Forward” program that gives these youths a chance at improvement and training that may combat the stigma of having a juvenile record.  

"Part of the American spirit is a belief in second chances, especially when it comes to young people," said acting Secretary of Labor Seth D. Harris, in a Department of Labor statement. "With these grants, we can encourage young people to ‘Face Forward' and build a brighter future for themselves and their communities."

Twenty-six grants of about $1 million each will be awarded to nonprofit groups that serve juvenile offenders between 16 and 24 years old.
