The PbS Employment Matching Award was created in 2017 to both promote a positive work ethnic in youths and encourage juvenile justice, business and community leaders to create opportunities for the youths to gain meaningful work experience before they are released. Stable and fulfilling work can be the bridge back to law-abiding and self-sufficient living the young people need. But barriers in addition to being incarcerated include lack of work experience and a resume showing the ability to meet job expectations and demands. The PbS Employment Matching Award is designed to help youths experience success working and move another step closer to a meaningful and sustainable career.
The application period for Spring 2020 is currently closed. Thank you to all who applied!
