Youth Summer Jobs Program on WGN
United Way South-Southwest partnered with the Cook County Justice Advisory Council to support youth employment opportunities for south suburban Cook county teens. Over 200 kids in the program worked with the Forest Preserves of Cook County and participated in a variety of interesting tasks.
Program participants, Cook County Board President, Toni Preckwinkle, and Wendy DuBoe were interviewed about the program by WGN’s Erik Runge.
Youth enrichment and job development span United Way’s issue areas and programs like this are core of our mission and we are proud of the success of the program and of the participants!
