The Work Group

The Work Group, located in Pennsauken, New Jersey, equips at-risk youth in transition to adulthood with the skills, education, and confidence to become self-directed, self-sufficient individuals who are productive and responsible members of their families and communities.

The Work Group operates the NJ Youth Corps program, a voluntary program for young people who have dropped out of school.  We serve approximately 100 individuals annually who at admission have met the minimum entrance criteria of a 6.0 reading and math grade level. Most of our students are 16 to 24 years of age, and have been out of school at least two years.
