One of the biggest losses under Welfare Reform and Welfare to Work or W2W was the loss of the gigantic  Summer Youth Employment Programs around the USA. The legislation that provided funding for these kids expired under the Clinton Administration.

By the year 2000, the few very small summer work programs that were left could not handle the hundreds of thousands of youth ages 14 – 18 that had previously worked summers at above minimum wage. A lot of families were hurt by the loss of youth income for clothing, shoes, supplies and even groceries in some households.

In 2014, the Citi Foundation decided to donate some money to help the youth in Dallas, Texas and other cities find work: NYC, Los Angeles, Chicago, Boston, San Francisco, Miami, St. Louis, Newark, N.J., and Washington.

The Citigroup Inc. charity division planned to donate $50,000,000 in to a program called Pathways to Progress that will begin Jun 2014.
