It’s been just over a month since the 2014 Youthprise Summit: Youth and Adults Working in Concert.

Brooklyn Bridge Alliance Youth Employment Initiative
This summer, Youthprise partnered this summer with the Brooklyn Bridge Alliance for Youth, one of our citywide systems building partners, to leverage a $100,000 Youthprise investment that was matched by more than $150,000 in contributions from local businesses, foundations and public jurisdictions in Brooklyn Park and Brooklyn Center. The funds will be used to launch a comprehensive youth employment initiative in the communities. Check out this news story on the initiative.
