SAVE School to Career Programs

65 Signatures Goal: 100

In the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, state budget cuts are an increasing concern. Governor Deval Patrick released his version of the FY2011 Budget, revealing a nearly $12 million gap for youth job programs for middle and high school students.

The effects of these budget cuts will affect high school students in a variety of different settings, most especially as they embark on the difficult transition towards higher education. Two organizations that aid students during this period of their life—Connecting Activities and Youth Works—will potentially lose funding.

These state funded school-to-career programs provide students with internship and employment opportunities throughout the academic year as well as over the summer. However, thousands of students will lose substantial access to these pivotal opportunities.



By signing this petition you are asking State Senate (Senate Ways and Means Committee)to restore funding to the Connecting Activities and Youth Works programs to the $4 million allocation it received in 2008.
