Fewer young Americans are working summer jobs than in decades past, and fewer of those jobs are going to the teens who need them most.

San Diego Workforce Partnership is a nonprofit organization that funds and operates youth employment programs.

On this week’s podcast, Andy Hall, vice president and chief program officer at San Diego Workforce Partnership, joined co-hosts Scott Lewis and Laura Kohn to talk about the nonprofit's approach to assisting youth seeking employment skills and experience.

Hall said San Diego has "53,000 16- to 24-year-olds who are not connected to either education or employment."

Lewis and Kohn also talk about schools' role to prepare youth for careers.
