Summer Jobs+ is a call to action for businesses, non-profits, and government to work together to provide pathways to employment for young people in the summer of 2012. It's about helping people find their first jobs.
Omar Epps is well known these days for his role as Dr. Eric Foreman on the tv show "House," but in the video below, the actor says he still has very fond memories of his first job, back when he was a teenager in Brooklyn.
So far, employers have committed to providing more than 300,000 jobs, mentorships, and other employment opportunities this summer through Summer Jobs+.
