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.
