Report on Building Skills through Summer Jobs

JPMorgan Chase recently released Building Skills Through Summer Jobs: Lessons from the Field, a report that details the company's analysis of the crises confronting summer jobs for American youth. The report finds a troubling overall shortage of available summer jobs, particularly in minority and low-income communities. Summer job opportunities available to young men and women have been steadily declining and in 2014, less than half of the young people seeking work in the 14 cities that JPMorgan Chase studied were able to find summer jobs or learning opportunities. That leaves tens of thousands of young people across the country unprepared for the increasing skill demands of employers. In addition to the findings, the report offers some potential solutions to these issues.
