New program for justice-involved youth coming in October 2019

Big Sandy Area Community Action Program (BSACAP) is pleased to announce that an all-new youth program will be coming to the agency in October.

For over 50 years, BSACAP has been providing workforce services to the people of the Big Sandy Valley, and this October the agency will continue to provide dynamic and innovative programs with the addition of a Justice-Involved Youth Program.

This new program will target youth ages 18-24 who have been involved with the criminal justice system at some point in their lives. The program will provide mentorship, educational opportunities, and intensive one-on-one job and career counseling with the aim of helping young adults to recover from their mistakes, build a life they can be proud of, and make our communities a better place to live.

The program will be available throughout Eastern Kentucky Concentrated Employment Program’s (EKCEP) 23 county service area and BSACAP has been awarded the contract to administer the program in Floyd, Johnson, Magoffin, Martin, and Pike counties.

If you or someone you know is interested in learning more about the program, call your local BSACAP service office at the end of September and find out how you can be involved in this exciting new opportunity.

Employers, youth offenders, and individuals are welcome to TAKE THIS SURVEY to help us learn more about the employment priorities for those involved with the justice system.
