Updated Youth Services Catalog is now available

In September 2009, Goodwill Industries of the Southern Piedmont commissioned the UNC Charlotte Urban Institute to assess the need for a workforce development program for youth in the community and recommend any changes that should be made to put its fledgling Youth Job Connection program on the right track. 

As part of this study, the Institute conducted an inventory of youth workforce development programs in Mecklenburg County, resulting in the Youth Services Catalog.  This catalog includes all organizations and programs that provide services related to workforce development for at-risk and disconnected youth in the Charlotte area.  It contains a range of information on each program/organization, including basic contact information, the mission, who it serves, what services it offers, and how it operates.

To ensure this catalog remains a relevant resource, Goodwill is sponsoring its maintenance by the Institute. The catalog will be updated as information becomes available, adding any new programs/organizations, removing those that no longer exist, and revising any information about existing programs/organizations as needed.  The opportunity for changes to the online information remains open at all times by contacting the UNC Charlotte Urban Institute (lshipley@uncc.edu).
