Teens survey their southwest Detroit neighborhood
A group of teenagers in Detroit has been pounding the pavement this summer and surveying local organizations. Their goal was to find out which organizations offer jobs and internships to young people.
The teenagers surveyed 150 organizations and mapped out their results using a data analysis program. One of the things the kids learned was that transportation becomes an issue for kids who are far away from resources.
The program is run by Partnership for Youth and is affiliated with the larger organization, Southwest Solutions.
