Richmond Summer Youth Employment Program
We were fortunate to be joined by Jay Leonhardy, who coordinates the program through the YouthWORKS Division of the City of Richmond in collaboration with several community partners. The summer of 2014 marks the tenth year of the Richmond Summer Youth Employment Program, which provides youth, ages 15-21, the opportunity to work in a variety of local jobs to gain vital work experience and earn money.
This valuable program focuses on providing services for the most educationally and economically disadvantaged youth, working with families with no more than 70% of the federal poverty guidelines income. As Jay had said, “Nothing in the world stops a bullet as fast as a job”. Through this important program, since 2005, over 200 youth have been provided with meaningful career path work experience.
