Compass Rose guides St. Louis' young adults, ages 18-24, out of the justice system and into productive employment or further education
What is Compass Rose?
Compass Rose addresses one of the most serious social problems in U.S. – the challenge of young people successfully entering the workplace and educational systems after significant brushes with the law. The program serves young adults, ages 18-24, released from the justice system, and helps them transition into productive employment or further education. It does so by providing participants a broad spectrum of job-related skills and opportunities, such as positive youth development, combined services specifically for recently-released individuals, work readiness development, and placement, and peer learning. The program teaches workplace ethics, good work habits, provides the opportunity to explore careers and gain on-the-job experience through job shadowing, apprenticeships, and internships.

- 18-24 years old;
