All children should have a voice in their future.
Labeled - Youth Speak Out About Barriers to Education
TeamChild joined a partnership in 2010 with the Juvenile Rehabilitation Administration and other community organizations funded by the Department of Labor. The project is called LEAP and is a juvenile offender reentry initiative that has a goal of connecting youth to education and employment after they are released from incarceration.
As part of our LEAP work, TeamChild staff produced a video designed to increase community awareness around the educational barriers facing youth transitioning out of detention and long-term incarceration. The video captures the experiences of youth, including those recently released from incarceration, and their educational goals and challenges.
