Governor Hogan Has The Tools To Help Baltimore City, Right Now!

Posted by Matt on May 14, 2015  |   Comments Off on Governor Hogan Has The Tools To Help Baltimore City, Right Now!

Friends,

In case you had not seen it, I wanted to share with you an editorial published in today’s Baltimore Sun written by Delegate Shelly Hettleman and myself.

I also wanted to mention that YouthWorks, the City’s summer employment program for young people, is in desperate need of donations. Since the beginning of the year, nearly 10,000 young people have signed up for employment through YouthWorks program. The program connects city youth with available employers for a five-week internship that includes a $1,500 stipend and invaluable on-the-job training.

Unfortunately, with limited funding, the program was only able to accept 5,000 applicants, leaving thousands of young people without employment opportunities during the summer months. The Mayor, City Council, federal and state government, and Baltimore’s corporate and philanthropic communities have been working to expand the program, but there is still a great need. If you are able, please consider making a financial contribution to YouthWorks by visiting baltimorecityfoundation.org and selecting “Mayor’s Office of Employment Development – YouthWorks 855-00” to make a tax-deductible contribution to help fund this effort.

Thank you!
