Chicago-bred rappers Kanye West & Common are teaming up to create 20,000 jobs for Chicago’s youth! The Chicago Youth Initiative will be creating jobs for Chicago’s youth, which will give them something productive to do during the summer and hopefully reduce this summer’s violence. Common says “It’s my duty to reach out to young people in Chicago, it’s my way of giving back. ‘Cause I’ve been afforded a chance to go out and live out my dreams, and I’m still dreaming. I wanna inspire and open up the gateways for the younger people in Chicago to go live their dreams.” So for those of you looking for something to do this summer, please look into the Chicago Youth Initiative!
