Youth Employment Partnership (YEP)
The Youth Employment Partnership (YEP), a Workforce Solutions Capital Area-funded program, is a collaboration of four community partners whose goal is to help young people transition from high school to post-secondary education, training, or suitable employment.
The partners are:
- American YouthWorks
AYW is a non-profit Charter School located in downtown Austin that incorporates job training and job placement services as part of their educational and project-based enrichment programs.
- Community in Schools
CIS surrounds students with a community of support proven to decrease dropout rates and increase high school graduations for Central Texas’ most challenged schools.
- Goodwill Industries of Central Texas
Goodwill is committed to providing services that help participants overcome identified barriers to education and employment.
LifeWorks' mission is to transition youth and families from crisis to safety and success. LifeWorks operates three multi-service centers in Austin and four sites dedicated to housing and serving homeless and runaway youth and youth exiting foster care.
