Connecting Unemployed Youth with Companies in Need

There are 2.5 million Americans ages 16 to 19 who are out of work or underemployed. This group includes teens who are employed part time when they would rather be working full time, teens who are enrolled in school while actively seeking employment, and teens who are neither working nor enrolled in school. Connecting these individuals with businesses in need could help everyone.
