feature - setAt Face Forward Knox, we believe each of us has strengths and talents that can, in some way, contribute to a satisfying and meaningful career. We also believe in second chances for young men and women who have come into contact with the juvenile court system. Through judicial diversion or perhaps expungement, young people can still face forward into their future.

Let us help you explore what you are capable of and help connect you to a successful job. Certain eligibility requirements exist; including area of residence, age and the nature of the juvenile offense.

In a few short months, we’ll work with you to complete three distinct goals:


  • Self Assessments – Learn more about your strengths and abilities
  • Career Assessments – Uncover career possibilities based on talents and preferences
  • Educational Assessments – Identify gaps and opportunities that will help you and the Face Forward Case Manager develop a plan that will move you forward
