We work to create multiple pathways that meet the needs of young people who are disconnected from education and employment while also meeting the needs of businesses.
Because work experience is critically important for their long-term success, we work to expand job opportunities for all young people.
Since 1999, the employment rate for working-age teens has declined dramatically from 45% in 1999 to 26% in 2012. Our teen employment programs help put young people on the first rungs of a career pathway.
