Youth Services

DFSS’ opportunities for growth continue into the adolescent and teen years through the department’s range of youth services.  DFSS supports thousands out-of-school time opportunities that allow youth to explore their talents and continue learning outside of the classroom.  The department also encourages young people to explore career development and gain marketable workforce skills through employment programs such as the Youth Workforce Investment Act program and Chicago’s summer youth employment program.
