Why Should I Enroll?

"Since I have been coming to Cherokee Youth Works, my confidence level has increased immensely. I used to love coming to school, so dropping out was a stupid mistake. But my instructors have helped me focus and strive to achieve my G.E.D. and I really love and appreciate how they reach out to each individual student."

What Happens at Cherokee Youth Works?
Cherokee Youth Works is a program of Cherokee FOCUS that works with both in-school and out-of-school youth ages 16 to 21. The goal of CYW is to see the youth complete their high school education and successfully graduate or receive their GED diploma if they have already dropped out of school. The youth also receive work readiness training, learn job skills and attend life skills classes.

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.
