Are your kids bored at home?

Posted by Jeremy Shulkin

Over 80 Worcester teens are traveling to Boston tomorrow to protest cuts to the state’s youth job funding, but first they’ll be meeting today from 2:00 to 4:00 at the Worcester Youth Center for a “pre-rally” to make signs and hear speakers.

Tomorrow’s rally starts at 1:30 at the Park St. station, and will proceed to the State House. Meetings with representatives are also slated.

Local groups involved in this are the Oak Hill CDC (508-754-2858) and the Pleasant St. Neighborhood Center (508-754-7793). We’re still waiting for word on how Worcester teens will get to Boston tomorrow. There will be a bus leaving Worcester tomorrow at 12:00 and returning at 6:00. Contact Patricia Mallios (pmallios@oakhillcdc.org) at the Oak Hill CDC for more details.

  1. I really wish kids would take advantage of programs in our area including some at the public schools, who already have a fair amount of local and state tax money, to occupy themsleves or pick up internships ( some even provide a small stipended ). Many churchs also have constructive youth activites as well as many non-profits. It seems to me that there needs to be much done to rally for jobs for adult especially parents who need to put food on the table, pay for heat, rent, day care, or clothing for their family. I appreciate work for our young, it just seems to conflict with the needs of adults who have responsibilities. Here’s and idea for youth work go rally for jobs for your mothers and fathers. Focus stimulus money on families.
