Kids From Low-Income Families Offered $15 Per Hour Jobs Through Youth Job Corps

The State of California is rolling out its #CaliforniansForAll Youth Jobs Corps at a cost of 185 million dollars over the next 2 years.

The program will create job opportunities for California’s underserved youth.

Some of those jobs will deal with climate change, food insecurity, and COVID-19 recovery.

The kids who participate will earn 15 dollars per hour.

The #CaliforniansForAll Youth Jobs Corps is a collaboration between the state entity known as California Volunteers,  and local governments.

The jobs will go to youth who are from low-income families, transitioning from the foster care system, out-of-work,  or in trouble with the law.

The aim is to prepare the youth for jobs in government.
