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."

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.
