Employment is a key motivating factor for many justice-involved young people, and CASES’ ECE staff provide job-readiness training, high school equivalency exam prep and testing, paid internships, and job placement services to help prepare young people for successful entry into the workforce. The Credentialing Specialist will help participants understand, access, and leverage meaningful employment-readiness credentials to thereby attain entry to high-growth sectors with the potential for advancement. The Credentialing Specialist will form relationships with staff from peer organizations providing a diverse range of external credentialing opportunities, and also facilitate credentialing workshops onsite at CASES, helping young people to engage in and complete these training programs. CASES, the oldest alternative-to-incarceration agency in New York State, works to increase public safety through innovative services that reduce crime and incarceration, improve behavioral health, promote recovery and rehabilitation, and create opportunities for success in the community.
