Eric Justian writes in Triple Pundit about Alcoa Foundation’s Global Internships for Unemployed Youth program administered by IIE. The program aims to increase the employability of youth in the manufacturing sector and to increase the pool of talent available to small- and medium-sized manufacturing companies. "Sixteen to 24 are the prime years when people would receive the training and experience to become productive, well-established citizens," writes Justian. "The tragedy is: Young people are missing that window."
