CCAC has partnered with Goodwill YouthWorks for Life Launch: Ignite Reentry Program. This voluntary program serves young adults, ages 18 to 24, who have been involved with the justice system and want to work toward a better future.

- An evaluation of your skills and interests
- Job training to help you become ready for employment
- Job seeking and support services to help you earn a good job
- A host of services to meet your unique needs, such as counseling, housing, clothing, transportation and more
When you complete training, you may:

- Get a good job and start earning a paycheck
- Go back to school to earn certificates or a degree
Ignite participants who pursue training or education through CCAC will have access to a dedicated CCAC Navigator as they move through the college system. From registration to completion, students will be provided with one-on-one support and services to encourage their individual success.
