At a press conference this morning, the YMCA of Greater Omaha announced the establishment of a new program that is aimed at providing services to juvenile offenders in high crime, high poverty areas of Omaha. The “Youth Opportunities Program” is designed to improve the long-term labor market prospects of high-risk youth, aged 14-18, who have been involved with the juvenile justice system within the past year.
This program is made possible by a $300,000 grant awarded by Spectrum Resources of Des Moines, whose goal it is to develop innovative career training systems for the unemployed, under-employed and hard to place workforces. The YMCA will collaborate with several other local non-profits and organizations to provide educational and vocational skills and support to better enable high-risk teens for a successful future.
