There’s very little practical information available for employers who want to give disadvantaged youth a chance at a job. At the same time, community employment programs trying to find work for their young clients are always searching for interested employers in their communities.
Our online toolkit for prospective employers and community agencies provides practical tips and resources to help at-risk youth secure employment.
