FACT SHEET: Education and Workforce Related Policies Affecting Systems-Involved Youth

This fact sheet intends to inform researchers, policymakers, and practitioners of the federal legislation that govern systems-involved youth, and highlight grant opportunities. This resource includes legislation and grants specifically focused on supporting secondary, postsecondary, and workforce success among youth involved in the juvenile justice and/or child welfare system.

The American Youth Policy Forum (AYPF), a nonprofit, nonpartisan professional development organization based in Washington, DC, provides learning opportunities for policy leaders, practitioners, and researchers working on youth and education issues at the national, state, and local levels. AYPF’s events and policy reports are made possible by the support of a consortium of philanthropic foundations. For a complete list, click here.
