Purpose

 

During challenging times and natural disasters, research suggests that teenagers feel better when they can turn their attention to supporting others in a meaningful way. Studies have found teenagers who provided the highest levels of social support to those impacted by a tragedy/disaster were the ones who went on to express the most confidence about their ability to face challenges in their own lives.

To this end, the City of Chicago launched the Chicago Youth Service Corps to employ youth ages 16-24 to support the City's response to COVID-19.
