More than a Paycheck: Reducing Inequality through Summer Job‪s‬ The City Club of Cleveland Podcast

    • Politics

Working a summer job teaches young people communication skills and fiscal responsibility, and introduces them to the basics of business. However, youth summer jobs also have the potential to improve educational outcomes and disrupt cycles of economic inequality and crime. All members of the workforce have felt the impacts of COVID-19, but those who were already most at risk were disproportionately impacted. Local leaders discuss the importance of summer jobs, their influence on career preparedness, and the role of summer employment in disrupting cycles of economic inequality- specifically for Black and Brown youth in our community.\r\nThis forum is part of our Workforce Development series sponsored by the Deaconess Foundation. Support for City Club Virtual Forums is provided by Bank of America, KeyBank, PNC and the Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District. Production and distribution of City Club forums in partnership with ideastream is generously provided by PNC and the United Black Fund. \r\n
