Our Children, Our Future
Florida Department of Juvenile Justice (DJJ) in collaboration with Tallahassee Community College (TCC) has established a partnership to deliver workforce education and career readiness services in three DJJ facilities in Okeechobee, Duval, and Walton counties.
In addition, youth in the other DJJ facilities will be assigned a career navigator who will work with them, other committed stakeholders, and champions to create personalized success plans. All youth who transition from a DJJ facility will receive follow-up services for up to 180-days from their release.
Project Anchor Will Provide
Project Anchor is expected to launch in August 2022. Students may begin participating in the program as early as September.
FCS and district postsecondary institutions can play an important role by assisting DJJ in partnership with TCC to establish a seamless system for enrollment beginning in Fall 2022. Youth referred to these institutions will receive tuition and fees covered by the Project Anchor funds administered by TCC.Connect Now
