Rogers Park Youth Employment Strategies (YES)

Monday, April 18, 2005
Special to

Cook County Commissioner Larry Suffredin (13th District) is proud to announce the creation of Rogers Park YES (Youth Employment Strategies), a program that brings business groups and community groups together to put youth in Rogers Park to work over the summer.

Rogers Park YES is a combined initiative of Illinois State Representative Harry Osterman, State Senator Carol Ronan and Commissioner Suffredin. The program came in response to many conversations and community meetings with Rogers Park youth. At these discussions youth continually said how they wanted to work over the summer.

In response to the obvious need for a youth employment program the elected officials brought together other elected officials, business groups, and community groups serving youth to create a summer jobs program.

Partnering with Mayor Daley's KidStart program, the Rogers Park YES partners created a program where youth would go through an extensive job readiness program and then be placed in part time jobs in businesses throughout the City of Chicago.

Rogers Park Y.E.S. offers young people, ages 15-21 the opportunity to work with local businesses.
