  A welfare recipient costs the U.S. on average $25 a DAY.*  If just ONE youth does not acquire the skills for a living wage, it costs you, a taxpayer, about $9,000 a year and $441,000 over his/her lifetime. You can help reduce the cost of welfare. 

With your donation, you can help teach CT youth to work, not just collect welfare to financially survive for life.
