The Young Adult Restoration Academy (YARA) is a six- month, paid work experience program for restored citizens ages 18-24. The goal of the academy is to provide 25 young-adult restored citizens in Columbus and Franklin County with various work experience programs which will result in obtaining permanent employment. Employment increases an ex-offender’s opportunities to obtain housing, healthcare and support him/herself and family. This internship will provide the participants the option to receive specialized skills training, supportive services, and more, all provided by partnering agencies who have come together to see each participant succeed.
