DONATE GIFT CARDS

In order to meet our mission and provide services in our community, we rely on the generosity of individuals and businesses for support.  Wtihout the assistance of community-mided individuals just like you, we wouldn't be able to serve those in our community each year.

If you are able to help us in this effort, we are requesting gift cards in any amount.  These gift cards will be given to youth who particpate in various non-paid/volunteer roles.  Your generous donation is tax deductible.  The tax identification number for your donation is 94-6000532.  To donate or to learn more, please email JobsforYouth@smcgov.org

INVESTING IN OUR YOUTH NEWS ARTICLES
  • Taylor, Blair. (2016, July 20). "Healing Our Communities Through Addressing ‘Opportunity Youth’"
 
"...Key to this is nurturing young people, ages 16-24, who are neither employed nor in school - many now refer to them as “Opportunity Youth”, given that they represent a sizeable opportunity for America. In the U.S. today, there are more than 5.5 million Opportunity Youth, and many of them live in communities of color. The potential, both for Opportunity Youth and for American businesses, is huge..."
 
 
 
 
  • Belfield, Clive R.; Levin, Henry M.; Rosen, Rachel (January 2012). "The Economic Value of Opportunity Youth"

It is often said that youth are society's future; individuals need to prepare and nurture them if they desire that future to be bright and productive. Yet, with the spotlight currently on slow economic growth and high unemployment across the U.S., there has been little focus on the plight of youth as they transition from school to adult life... These are youth whose potential is not being fully realized--individuals' failure to harness that potential is an opportunity missed. These youth represent a social opportunity, but also an economic one. (Contains 15 tables, 14 figures and 40 endnotes.)
