Live Chat: Possible Solutions to Youth Unemployment

Share this story:


Teen employment in the U.S. is near historic lows, yet companies report jobs going unfilled because they can’t find qualified workers. So how do we solve the problem?

This past April the New Options Project Youth Advisors (NOPYAs) of Youth Radio hosted their first of three live chats on youth unemployment issues – gathering over 300 participants from across the country. This July the advisors are hosting the second chat, this time narrowing the focus to youth-identified solutions to unemployment. Please join us to share perspectives from around the country. Stay tuned for the third and final live chat where we collectively refine the solutions that we’ve discussed happening in November. For more information on the New Options Project click here.
