Janus Youth Programs awarded $23,500 in scholarships this fall to 12 youth in Oregon Youth Authority custody.
The awards from the Scholarship for Success Foundation go to youth who already have a high school diploma or GED and are in a Janus program. In this case, the winners were all participants in Hope Partnership at MacLaren Youth Correctional Facility. Hope Partnership provides classes, workshops, and other programs to help youth explore their talents and prepare for their eventual transition back into the community.
The scholarships may be used for higher education, including master’s degrees, work supplies, technical training programs, certificate programs, or child care while they attend school, work, or training programs.
Janus is a nonprofit that operates more than 40 programs across the Northwest to provide services and resources for at-risk youth. This includes Hope Partnership as well as four residential programs for OYA youth.
