Exclusive!! Magic Johnson To Invest $10 Million In Summer Job Program For Chicago Youth

Blog : February 19th, 2015

Legendary basketball star Magic Johnson and Kimbra Walter recently made a $10 million investment in Chicago’s inner-city youth. The duo are co-founders of Inner City Youth Empowerment LLC and their gift will help keep at-risk youth safe from summer violence by providing summer employment opportunities.

The $10 million donation will triple the size of the program known as “One Summer Chicago Plus.” It will provide 5,000 summer jobs for 16-to-19-year-old inner-city youth living in high crime areas where they will be able to work up to 25 hours a week during the summer months.

Additionally, youth will be exposed to professional development opportunities, connect with mentors and build social skills.
