Baltimore’s YouthWorks program began its 50th year of operations this week. The month-long initiative aims to address violence and poverty among city youth, and now serves as a template for cities around the country working on similar objectives. YouthWorks is spearheaded by the Baltimore City Mayor’s Office of Employment Development, which works to place Baltimore residents ages 14 to 21 in various workplaces around the city for five weeks. Participants will earn Maryland’s current minimum wage of $13.25 an hour.
