|The Cherokee Youth Works Program has been in existence for over four years.
CYW has over a 90% success rate in youth exiting the program.
CYW believes in a holistic approach to working with youth addressing youth's needs and building on their strengths.
Youth will attend GED, life skills and work readiness classes, participate in educational field trips, learn about career opportunities, and be assisted in employment and college entrance.
CYW provides 12 months of follow-up after exit to ensure that youth maintain employment or college enrollment and will step in and assist during this time when necessary.
CYW seeks to assist families as we are helping youth. Parents should feel free to ask for assistance if needed.
