Program Description: The NXT Level Youth Opportunity Program focuses on providing comprehensive services and holistic support to youth aged 16-24 who are disconnected from education and employment. Through a whole-person trauma-informed approach, NXT Level coaches collaborate with opportunity youth to create individualized plans that focus on helping them achieve their personal, education, and career goals. The collaboration is focused on reducing disconnected youth by offering wraparound case management and supportive services for school re-enrollment, high school diploma equivalency completion, vocational and postsecondary training, and career and job readiness preparation. Funding will pay for salaries and fringe benefits for a Lead Education Coach and three Education Coaches as well as contract work for a ETO Data Consultant.
