NLC to Discuss City Roles in Transitional Jobs Programs

April 12, 2012
Clifford Johnson, Executive Director of the National League of Cities Institute for Youth, Education and Families (YEF Institute) and Andrew Moore, Senior Fellow at the YEF Institute will speak during the National Transitional Jobs Network conference tomorrow. 

Johnson will discuss municipal responses to reentry and how cities can help individuals successfully reenter their communities and find employment following incarceration. Moore will discuss the major role special services and adult relationships can play in the transitional employment process for disconnected youth, as well as different approaches to youth subsidized employment.

Johnson oversees the work of the YEF Institute, a special entity within NLC which helps municipal leaders take action on behalf of children, youth and families in their communities. Moore works with the YEF Institute on a variety of city efforts to reengage at-risk youth in education and employment, and to reduce youth violence.
