For a new Deputy Director of Programs who oversees all programming staff, including their new adjunct faculty, and all curriculum development, and who is responsible for ensuring that they meet their growth goals of serving 234 youth through their core program and another 258 youth through their graduate programming. Initiatives of particular focus for the upcoming year include: their new adjunct faculty; referral and internship partnership building; and graduate college access programming. Exalt Youth is a voluntary program that elevates expectations of personal success for youth ages 15-19 who have been involved in the criminal justice system through a combination of structured classes, individualized supports to navigate the education and justice systems, paid internships, and a helpful alumni network providing additional resources. Through increased engagement with government agencies, Exalt is positioned to assist in the new Raise the Age implementation in New York, which will enable more youth to receive assistance outside of the jail system, both during and after the sentencing periods.
