A 12-Point Plan for Job Creation in Urban Communities

CEET - Classroom training - P1180207

I saw a post on about the National Urban League and I am really digging its 12-point program on job creation that it released last month. Highlights of the program include:

  • A call to restore the Summer Youth Jobs program in order to employ 5 million young people through the summer of 2011;
  • Development of a national public-private jobs initiative;
  • A boost minority participation in communications and information technology industries;
  • Reformation, revision, and reauthorization of the Workforce Investment Act;
  • Expanding small business lending;
  • Creating green empowerment zones; and
  • Reducing the interest rate on the SBA Community Express loans


Let’s make some of these happen!!
