Brandeis to place 3,000 at-risk local teens in summer jobs with $5m grant from Walmart Foundation

Posted by Maisha Meminger - On July 09, 2012 (EST)

Brandeis University (Waltham, MA) is launching a program, funded by the Walmart Foundation, that will place underserved teens in summer jobs with a positive social impact. The program, which aims to secure employment for about 3,000 young people, is run by the Center for Youth and Communities in Brandeis' Heller School for Social Policy and Management.

Besides placing youth in jobs such as promotion assistants, community outreach coordinators, camp counselors, and more, researchers at Brandeis will also provide on-the-ground assistance and will study the outcomes of the program.

This program is coordinating with other organizations and working within the broader contexts of the Walmart Foundation's national grant initiative to positively engage youth across the country, and the White House Summer Jobs Plus Initiative.
