Youth Development Grants
In Central Harlem, unemployment for youth between the ages of 16 and 19 is higher than 50 percent. In addition, funding for youth employment has been cut. Through the Youth Organizing Project, Action for Community Empowerment (ACE) is waging two campaigns: The Youth to Work Experience Project campaign is an effort to get local and city businesses to designate jobs for local youth. The Impact on Drugs campaign is an effort to prevent drug use and sale in their neighborhoods. ACE received a $20,000 grant in support of this project.
