Provides that the Department shall provide vocational training for committed persons in each institution and facility of the Department. Provides that each institution and facility of the Department of Juvenile Justice shall provide educational and vocational training for all persons committed to the Department.

 Fiscal Note (Department of Juvenile Justice)

In addition, the Department provides other vocational opportunities such as Youth Build and ACT Key Train. Because the Department is already required by the Federal consent decree to provide these services, the legislation has a minimal, if any, fiscal impact on the Department.
