RochesterWorks and the MC Youth Council are in the process of redesigning job training and employment services to youth ages 14-21. They wanted to obtain input directly from youth on what they feel they need in terms of training--what type of training, where do they want to go to obtain training, what barriers are they facing in the job search, etc. CGR was hired to conduct focus groups with youth to gather input on these questions. CGR held focus groups in the city and in the suburbs and with youth from different demographic cohorts.
