In her State of the City address, Mayor Catherine Pugh said the Youthworks job enrollment program saw a 25 percent increase in applications this year.

Pugh said last year, 12,000 young people ages 14-21 applied to the YouthWorks program. This year, 16,000 applied.

The mayor noted that the city is looking to track graduating seniors in their trajectories- whether its school, a job, or the armed forces- and reach out to those who need help finding a path.
