Mayor's Neighborhood Corps

Mayor Frank G. Jackson visited a group of workers from the Mayor’s Neighborhood Corps. This group of young adults are employed by Youth Opportunities Unlimited as part of the $500,000 contribution Mayor Jackson and the Office of Prevention, Intervention, and Opportunities for Youth and Young Adults made towards youth employment for the summer. The Neighborhood Corps includes about 73 young adults who work on neighborhood beautification projects across the city. This particular group was preparing tree wells for planting in the Bellaire Puritas area.
