Biography

The Chelsea Summer Youth Employment Initiative was created to reduce and ultimately eliminate youth violence. On the morning of September 11, 2001, Latino leaders were meeting at Chelsea City Hall organized by the Collaborative’s Latino Coalition to address concerns with an increase in youth and gang violence. That summer a young person lost his life due to gang violence. Latino and other leaders saw that life as one too many lost to street violence. That morning, symbolic for many reasons, will stand for the Collaborative as the birth of the extremely popular and successful Summer Youth Employment Initiative (SYEI). Years later, the SYEI has hired hundreds of youth and kept them off the streets all while learning valuable employment skills.
