WOODSTOCK - A special group of young people is re-entering the workforce with the help of a nonprofit organization.

The Osborne Association offers eight weeks of job-readiness training to young people who were either formerly incarcerated or in-and-out of court.

Every year, the program graduates about 40 students during six cohorts, or cycles.

In this cohort, 10 people graduated. Two of them already have jobs.

Program Director Andrew Ward says that he gains pleasure knowing that the participants "have really grown and developed in meaningful ways," and are going to lead productive, successful lives.
