YNDC's blight fighting army continues to grow with the addition of team members through the Mahoning Columbiana Training Association's (MCTA) Summer Youth Employment Program.
The program provides young people age 16 to 24 with paid work through the summer. YNDC is participating in the program and the participants are working to fight blight throughout the City of Youngstown. They are cutting grass at vacant homes, boarding up vacant homes, and assisting with other neighborhood projects. Many participants will also have the opportunity to enlist in YNDC' s year long AmeriCorps REVITALIZE program.
