Students want more job training

August 12, 2012 

The city's summer youth program provided job opportunities for 150 students this summer.

Money has been budgeted for an additional 75 students in 2013. The city would like to add 75 more in 2014.

Part-time jobs, career planning, mentorships and learning a trade were high on the survey of students' needs conducted for the Youth Commission on Youth Development and Safety.
