To support a full-time Job Developer who will provide job placement and retention support to young people in their Education, Career, and Enrichment (“ECE”) programs, including their two largest youth programs – Jobs for America’s Graduates New York (“JAG NY”) and the Court Employment Project (“CEP”). Their ECE programs annually serve more than 650 young people between the ages of 12 and 24 who are involved in or at-risk for involvement within the criminal justice system. The services emphasize work readiness, passing the high school equivalency exam, and attaining industry-recognized work credentials. The addition of the Job Developer will increase their capacity to work with older disconnected youth, especially those aged 18-24 who have built their work-readiness skills and who now seek to secure and advance in part-time and full-time employment. CASES, the oldest alternative-to-incarceration agency in New York State, works to increase public safety through innovative services that reduce crime and incarceration, improve behavioral health, promote recovery and rehabilitation, and create opportunities for success in the community.
