JPMorgan Chase Commits $17 Million to Create Skills-Based Summer Jobs for Young Adults
ST. LOUIS, MO, (SLFP.com), June 25, 2017 - JPMorgan Chase & Co. is commiting $17 million, five-year commitment to U.S. cities working to increase the number of teens with access to quality summer work experiences that put them on a path to greater economic mobility.
As part of the firm's more than $325 million global investment in skills development, this nationwide effort will help equip young people with the skills and experiences they need to succeed and bridge the gap between the demand for summer jobs and the number of available positions.
This summer, $3 million of the $17 million investment in Summer Youth Employment Programs (SYEPs) will go to organizations in 19 U.S. cities that provide training and work experiences for young people. The cities include Chicago, IL; Cleveland, OH; Dallas, TX; Plano, TX; Detroit, MI; Indianapolis, IN; Louisville, KY; Milwaukee, WI; St. Louis, MO (St. Louis Community Foundation Incorporated; $150,000); Boston, MA; Fort Lauderdale, FL; Jersey City, NJ; Miami, FL; New York, NY; Newark, NJ; Philadelphia, PA; Sacramento, CA; San Francisco, CA; and Seattle, WA.
"It's a moral and economic crisis that too many young people graduate high school without clear pathways to good jobs," said Jamie Dimon, Chairman and CEO, JPMorgan Chase. "We must make it a national priority to provide youth with the skills they need to succeed, and this starts by providing them with meaningful summer work. Our Summer Youth Employment Program does just that by exposing more students to jobs that teach them the skills they need to find careers in growing industries later on."
By 2025, 65 percent of jobs in the United States will require some postsecondary education, training or credential - up from 28% of jobs in the 1970s. These heightened expectations will require young people to gain work experience and develop skills today to enable them to compete in the global workforce in the future.
