Urban League of Greater Atlanta

On the December 9 edition of The Local Take, I spoke with Charles Walker of the Urban League of Greater Atlanta about YouthBuild.  Mr. Walker explained that this program began in New York when young men were asked what they wanted to do in their neighborhoods. The program is designed for young people between the ages of 16 and 24 who are interested in a career in the construction trades.

Support for  Jazz 91.9 WCLK comes from the Urban League of Greater Atlanta, presenting the 54th Annual Equal Opportunity Day Dinner on Saturday, December 5 at 7:00 p.m. at the Hyatt Regency Atlanta. This event recognizes and celebrates long-standing corporate citizenship, civic engagement and academic achievement.

U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch and Congressman Hank Johnson are among the honorees.
