You’ve probably heard that youth unemployment is high. In fact, it is more than twice that of the overall unemployment. High school and college students are finding it harder and harder to obtain a summer job or part-time job, due to the slowly recovering economy. Even worse, 5.8 million young adults aren’t connected to work or school
. What can be done about it? How can education help? How can young adults gain the experience needed to get a job?
Lumity and Tec Services, along with many other businesses
around the state, are participating in the Summer Youth Employment Program
. This program offers short term, paid opportunities to youth aged 16-24 who come from under-resourced communities.
