This is why we take great pride in our Support & Transition Services department for providing quality assistance to our youth in the aspects of their lives that they need the most. These services are imperative to the development of our Corpsmembers into healthy and productive citizens beyond the Corps.

Each Corpsmember receives case management and life skills advising to ensure their success. LCSW and MSW case workers, and MSW interns provide counseling and referrals for housing, mental health, healthcare, legal issues and child care.
Corpsmembers receive academic advising through the Corps while they are enrolled in the program, even while in college, and can always return for more assistance as program alumni.
Corpsmembers can also receive assistance transitioning to well-paying jobs including resume development, interview prep and introduction to employers. We provide life skills education including driver’s education, financial literacy and time management. Corpsmembers leave our program prepared for post-secondary education and for the working world.
We offer scholarships to Corpsmembers for their post-secondary education. These scholarships are raised through private contributions from foundation, corporate and individual donors each year. The Corps has awarded two million dollars in scholarships over the past 30 years.
