CHPA provides a vocational assessment which determines a youth’s work experience and qualifications. The assessment also conducts an activity called Life Maps, which ascertains a youth’s life experiences and goals. Life Maps also help the staff to evaluate supportive services that are necessary and beneficial to the youth. Every youth participates in a job readiness class called Covenant House Orientation in Career Enhancement Skills (CHOICES). CHOICES is a weeklong class that provides youth with job and career information. During the class, youth learn to create resumes, job search, perform on interviews, and other important criteria related to obtaining and sustaining employment.
