Like other business tax credits, a youth employment tax credit would provide incentives for employers in this case to hire young adults.  Employers would pay lower social security or other taxes for teenage or twenty-something employees.

Liz commented on Millennial TechCorps

Hi Trevor. Sorry for the delay in responding. Fall term at a school is crazy. I've found a few good leads to pilot this project which I'm starting to follow-up on over the coming weeks. I've also gotten lots of good feedback from young people interested in being Tech Corps members and a good suggestion to organize coding meet-up groups among the fellows so they can work together on difficult technical problems confronting some of the nonprofits. Thanks for your continued interest in this idea. More to come, Liz

Liz commented on Millennial TechCorps

Thanks Geordie, Leigh, Bettina, Maureen, and Gavin for your congratulations. Congratulations too to Leigh and Gavin. Thanks for all your help developing the Millennial Corps idea. I'm hoping to find someone or some organization who would like to implement the idea. If you know of someone, please let me know. I hope our paths cross again online or in person. Until then, all the best, Liz
