Project P.L.U.S. youth gain skills needed for self-sufficiency

  • Obtaining a high school diploma or GED
  • Gaining and maintaining employment
  • Learning daily living skills such as problem solving; purchasing, preparing and cooking nutritious meals; medication management; anger management; and scheduling of appointments
  • Evaluating community resources, building positive relationships, and using good judgment
  • Exploring family involvement or reunification when appropriate
  • Understanding culture and diversity issues

Youth who have not yet earned their high school diploma or GED are required to attend school daily. Each youth participates in at least four academic support/tutoring activities each month geared toward improving academic performance in their weakest areas. Youth can also attend local technical colleges. We work closely with Cobb Works to assist youth in locating employment.

Youth are encouraged to think about what they need to live independently. Devereux works with youth to set goals and become familiar with all available housing assistance and other resources in the community. Emphasis is placed on each youth having at least one positive adult connection or permanency contact that has committed to provide on-going support to the youth during their placement and following discharge.
