LANSING –Kristin Harrington, executive director of Youth Solutions, which provides Jobs for Michigan’s Graduates programming through partnerships all over Michigan, knows change is possible.
“The challenge in Michigan is building our youth talent pipeline,” said Harrington. “In Michigan, nearly 11,000 kids drop out of high school every year. Without that building block of a diploma, students are more than twice as likely to live in poverty, 63 times more likely to be incarcerated and
59 percent more likely to be unemployed.”
