Project RENEW Broward

Project RENEW (Rebuilding Efforts, Networks, Education and Work) is a workforce development program funded by the US Department of Labor Employment and Training Administration. Project RENEW Broward targets individuals between 18 and 24 years old living in Broward County who are presently or were previously involved in the adult or juvenile justice system.

Project RENEW is designed to help young adults obtain education and occupational skills training that leads to an industry-recognized credential, so that they can gain and retain jobs aligned with selected career pathways in the following industry sectors: Construction & Building Trades; Transportation & Utilities; Professional & Business Services; Information Technology; Education & Health Services; and Leisure & Hospitality.

RENEW Broward is a free program designed to help adults gain greater self-sufficiency by ultimately providing placement in jobs that pay a livable wage. The Project RENEW model is founded on evidence-based curricula, approaches and programs and includes ongoing legal support, navigational case management, GED or high school completion, occupational skills training, work readiness training, soft skills development, job placement, job retention support, mentorship, and linkages to support services.

Gang Alternative, Inc. benefits from the guidance of its Employer and Industry Advisory Committee which provides technical input to GA’s workforce development program and activities. Project RENEW Broward is implemented through the support of Trial Lawyers of Florida, Broward College, and several social service providers.
