There is a group of 5.6 million Americans ages 16-24 who are not employed and not in school. In 2013, the cost of these disconnected youth - including health care, public assistance, and incarceration - was $25.8 billion. While some have lost hope in this group, others, like the Schultz Family Foundation, are investing in training programs that will equip these Americans with hard and soft skills to enter and advance in the workforce. Is this charity or will the $30 million be used to solve a serious business problem?
