Summer Youth Employment Program
Youth Services has been busy coordinating the CHRC Summer Youth Employment program. The theme this year is “Culture and Career Exploration.” Youth will learn about cultural awareness and how to embrace diversity in the workplace and community. This year we are partnering with the Freedom School so the youth can help mentor some of the younger children.
The program will run from June 10- August 9, 2013. The students will work for 20 hours per week. This job opportunity is a great way for youth to learn job readiness skills, develop a work ethic, and earn money. Interested youth can download an application from the main vendor’s website, which is the Greater Cincinnati Urban League, www.gcul.org

In 1948 (Jackie Robinson’s 2nd year in the league), the Mayor’s Friendly Relations Commission now the Cincinnati Human Relations Commission created a poster project to fight for racial and religious understanding. In this photo, you can see former Reds player (Dan Lithwiler) and Jackie Robinson posing for a picture with the poster. 

“What’s his race or religion got to with it – He can Pitch! Keep pitching for EQUAL RIGHTS for all Americans. Remember – Home Runs are made by children of every race, color, creed and national origin.” Since 1943, the agency has been a voice in this community & will continue to fight for equal rights.
