The cost of high youth unemployment? $25 billion a year, according to this new report.

At the same time, we know companies are struggling to find qualified talent. It's time to help young people gain access to career paths and close the Opportunity Divide.

I was so enlightened to watch Year Up on 60 Minutes this evening.  It reminded me of the business opportunity that I am involved in on the Net.  I would love to pass along my information to see if perhaps you might want to explore adding your talent to increasing your income and possible being a speaker yourself as you move up.... http://100percentcommissionsguaranteed.com.  This site is to let you meet some whom are involved.  I am very proud of this organization.  God Bless, You and all the hard work that I have seen from all viewed tonight....  Joann Adinolfi Holstein.  You can follow me on Facebook. 

A little about me!  I work as a Director and Head Teacher at a Christian Preschool in Cheshire, CT.  I owned and operated my own Day Care for 22 years.  It was called Jumpin' Beans Day School. 
I blog daily and you can see my posts at http://empowernetwork.com/joannholstein

Empowering urban talent to reach their potential
Introduction
Year Up's mission is to close the Opportunity Divide by providing urban young adults with the skills, experience, and support that will empower them to reach their potential through professional careers and higher education.

We achieve this mission through a high support, high expectation model that combines marketable job skills, stipends, internships, college credit, a behavior management system and several levels of support to place these young adults on a viable path to economic self-sufficiency.
