For our inaugural episode, we tackle the idea of universal summer jobs for all New York City youth. In February of 2016 Lazar Treschan, Director of Youth Policy at CSS, produced a report proposing the idea that all students who want one should have access to summer employment. Not only should they get a job, but that job should be connected integrated with their schooling. In this podcast, we hear from David R. Jones, the President and CEO of CSS, about our proposal and why summer jobs are so important for young people. Then we head up to the Bronx to see first-hand one school that is working hard to provide meaningful summer employment to their students; and we end up at a boat building workshop on the Bronx River.
