YMCA of Greater New York's Fundraiser:

TEEN CAREER CONNECTION 2015

THE STORY:

Many teenagers cannot find work over the summer. The majority of employment opportunities that are available to teens are in fastfood and retail and do very little to build their resumes or their skill sets.

The West Side YMCA has developed a program to address this need with Teen Career Connection. Last year, we received over 2,000 applications from teens throughout the city eager to participate in the program. Out of this group, we selected the 35 brightest and most qualified individuals.

This year we received over 3,500 applications for just 35 positions. It costs $2,500 to support a teen in the program. We've already secured 25 sponsors, please help us support 7 more!

Please give what you can. Any amount helps!
