Youth Jobs! Coalition Organizes for Federal Funding

Based in Massachusetts, the Youth Jobs Coalition consists of 40 youth and community groups from across the state who work together to create more employment opportunities for teens. Currently, 18 percent of Black high school students in Massachusetts are employed, according to the coalition’s report. This year, the organization’s rallying and efforts helped to secure $10 million from the government for summer youth jobs — $1 million more than last year. This funded 500 new opportunities.
