In its 24th year, Common Wealth’s Youth Program was successful in its goal to provide disadvantaged youth in the Greater Madison community with employment and financial education, job placements, and mentoring. We served 135 teens in our Youth-Business Mentoring Program, and another 129 youth in our Employment and Financial Education Workshops.
- 94% of our Youth-Business Mentoring Program participants were students of color
- 96% came from low-income households
- 69 % lived in challenged neighborhoods
- 109 teens were placed in jobs with local businesses
