Since the dramatic surge in violent crime among youth that swept the country during the 1980s and 1990s, gun violence in U.S. cities has largely been treated as a young person’s problem. Research and resources, along with media coverage, is often directed towards addressing gun violence among teens and young adults.

Student Working Groups
College students around the country often participate in student employment during their college careers. Many students need to work to help afford tuition or fulfill a work-study requirement for financial aid. Other students seek job opportunities to build skills and credentials for the careers they seek after they graduate. Students who are unable to find jobs that meet their financial needs and serve their professional development goals may be at a disadvantage relative to their peers.
