Jobs & The Economy: Putting America Back to Work

Summer Jobs+

"America’s young people face record unemployment, and we need to do everything we can to make sure they’ve got the opportunity to earn the skills and a work ethic that come with a job. It’s important for their future, and for America’s.”
–President Obama


President Obama issued a challenge to businesses, non-profits, and government: Work together to provide pathways to employment for low-income and disconnected youth.

Building off the 2012 Summer Jobs+ program, President Obama has announced Youth Jobs+ that will bring together elected officials, local businesses, non-profit organizations and faith institutions to create pathways to employment for young Americans.
