Youth Employment Program

MARC's Youth Employment Program provides young adults with an opportunity to improve the quality of life in their neighborhood through hard work, dedication and commitment. Far too often, we, as a society, blame youth for the destruction of our neighborhoods without providing adequate education and opportunities for them to focus their abundance of energy. This program, which employs 20 area youths, has produced tremendous results as well as attempting to change the negative perception of young people. We believe youths can and do make a difference in society, if they are given the opportunity.

"What I am most proud of is the youth employment program," said MARC President Thomas Conway. "It's important to stress community involvement with the kids. It instills a sense of pride and you need to start at a youth age. I feel we lost a generation. People use to sweep the front of their houses and scrub their steps but not any more."
