Raise DC releases youth “snapshot”


Raise DC’s report highlights the challenges faced by young people in DC’s poorest communities. Not surprisingly, we have our work cut-out for us.

A Washington Post article by Emma Brown examines Raise DC’s report on the educational and employment conditions for youth in the District.

The report makes clear that older youth need enhanced education and job training opportunities. “What Raise D.C. says is, it’s everybody’s responsibility to help these kids,” says Lucretia Murphy, co-chair of Raise DC’s leadership council and executive director of the foundation that runs the city’s Maya Angelou alternative charter schools.
