On Wednesday, New York City Council Member and Deputy Leader Jumaane D. Williams will join Community Service Society (CSS) to release a report on Summer Youth Jobs. The report will detail how New York City can get to universal summer youth employment, double year-round youth jobs and why it’s a critical step towards fighting inequality, reducing violence and improving education.
Youth employment has proven effective at decreasing crime, improving school attendance, and increasing rates of exam passage while decreasing the likelihood of incarceration and death. With more funding and a few straightforward programmatic changes, universal summer youth employment is within reach for our City.
WHO: Williams and CSS will be joined by additional elected officials and an interdisciplinary group of advocates from law enforcement, youth services, legal services and violence interrupters
WHERE: City Hall Steps
