The Center for Youth and Communities has released a handbook featuring seven Practical Advice Guides by and for youth practitioners, managers, and worksite supervisors engaged in summer and year-round youth employment programs. This is a draft handbook titled, "Practical Advice Guides: Smart strategies to employ, educate and support youth in employability development programs". We invite you to review the guides and offer feedback.
The Center for Youth and Communities (CYC) is the National Program Office for The Walmart Foundation’s $5 Million investment in summer youth employment. In 2012, our Center provided grants ranging from $500,000 to $800,000 to employ, educate and support nearly 3,000 inner city youth in Phoenix & Maricopa Couty, Ariz.; New York City; Hartford, Conn.; Philadelphia; Chicago; Detroit; and Los Angeles.
