Trauma- and violence-informed (TVI) approaches aim to reduce the harmful effects of trauma and create environments that promote growth and development. Youth who have experienced trauma face many persistent barriers to employment. Systems and services that are not trauma-informed can exacerbate its effects and prevent youth from seeking out, participating in, or benefiting from employment and skills training programs, resulting in further marginalization and poorer outcomes generally.
