The mission of youth services is to assist low-income Hoosiers, ages 14-21, who face significant barriers to education and/or employment by providing resources and supports to overcome those barriers and successfully transition to self-sufficient adulthood. Programs and services are designed to assist youth in increasing basic skills, attaining a degree and/or industry recognized credential, and/or placement into employment or post-secondary education.
