Kevin Seawright has his sights set on helping youth excel in education and in life. Through the company he works for, Newark Community Economic Development Corporation, Seawright hopes to empower the local youth.
Earlier on in February this year, Kevin Seawright led his company into a partnership with NewarkWorks and a few prominent persons in Newark in an attempt to help the youth secure summer employment opportunities.
The Summer Youth Employment Plan was geared towards offering summer work experience to students from Newark region. The work experience was in turn expected to bring a positive turnaround in terms of the college graduation rates in the area. The program had been designed to include a range of activities. These include on-job training, empowerment talk sessions, lessons on finance management, and college preparation programs.
Newark CEDC has been offering student employment programs even in the previous year. This year’s program was quite different from the rest as it had students tendering their applications online for the very first time. The 2016 program had also aimed at increasing the number of students employment opportunities from the year before’s figure of 3,000 to around 3,500.
In addition to everything, Kevin Seawright had also involved Santander Bank and TD bank in his 2016 program. He had hoped that the financial insights gained from the two corporate institutions would help participating students learn how to open accounts and save money.
