St. Louis Youth Jobs Targets High Crime Areas

The city of St. Louis introduced a new Youth Jobs program this summer that specifically sought out youth aged 16-23 who live in zip codes with relatively high crime rates. The group’s organizers went door to door in these neighborhoods and asked if businesses would be willing to hire a summer worker. (Photo: Courtesy of St. Louis Youth Jobs)
