‘Youth Wins’ Initiative To Help Young Adults Get Jobs on Staten Island

Spectrum News | by Thabie Sibanda

 

A new collaboration between ten organizations called “Youth Wins” is looking to develop a strong young adult workforce on Staten Island.

It’s a program that will help people like Justin Lopez.

“What I got out of today was that there’s a lot of foundations here to help provide for me and help me get into college and have work,” student Justin Lopez said.

“Youth Wins” is hoping to combat a statistic it says is staggering.  JOBSFIRSTNYC says one in five Staten Islanders between the ages of 18 and 24 is out of work and out of school.
