Movement on Summer Youth Funding

From our friends at the National Association of Workforce Development Professionals


Earlier this week, Chairman David Obey (D-WI) introduced H.R. 4899, Disaster Relief and Summer Jobs Act of 2010. This measure would provide $600 million for summer youth programs. Timing of House consideration is still up in the air, but it could come up as early as today. This program supports our local and national economy, and provides a meaningful way to engage youth.

If you support this program, please contact your member of Congress today and request that he or she support H.R. 4899. Explain how important it is that the Summer Youth programs receive this much needed funding. Be sure to share any success stories that you have. The more personal you can make your story – the better!

To find the phone number for your Member of Congress, simply go to www.house.gov.
