Summer Youth Working

Posted by Unknown Friday, August 6, 2010

The Summer Youth Works Program in Baltimore City ends today, Friday, August 6, 2010. Many youth throughout the City of Baltimore had the opportunity to earn income and gain valuable experience. We were blessed to have 14 youth working at Union Baptist Church this season. They began the 6 week experience needing discipline and nurturing. They ended the experience understanding the nature of teamwork and exposed to a cadre of community leaders who talked with them in daily "rap" sessions. They will share in the worship experience with their families and friends on Sunday, August 8th and inform the congregation about what they have learned this summer. One of the young men in the program had to opportunity to visit Morocco for a ten day experienced sponsored by the church. I continue to pray for our youth.

I ran across this interesting bit of information: About 25 percent of all male Americans between the ages of 10 and 15 were "gainfully employed" at the turn of the century. By 1970, so few in that age bracket were employed that the U.S. Census Bureau did not bother to make inquiries about them.
