The Youth Job Center recently added three new workers to its staff.

Amanda Deisch, director of programs, has 15 years’ experience working in the nonprofit sector, most recently on food security and policy issues in underserved communities on the south side of Chicago and including over 10 years of workforce development experience.

Thelma Redmond, career advisor at the Maine East Outpost, has done case management work with the Salvation Army, including helping clients transition from prison back into the community by securing employment, housing, and job- training, while dealing with substance abuse and mental health concerns and treatment.

Donisha Moss, career pathways advisor, brings nearly four years of experience in social service work to her role.  She most recently worked with the Chicago Housing Authority’s Family Works program which helps put families on a path to self-sufficiency through employment and education.

The Youth Job Center of Evanston prepares youth ages 14-25 for success in the workplace through job-readiness, placement and employment support in partnership with employers.
