Actor Michael K. Williams is on a Mission to Help NYC Youth Secure Summer Jobs

While COVID-19 may have altered educational institutions across the country, it hasn’t eliminated the job market for young people. To keep young people active and motivated during this time, veteran actor and “The Wire” star Michael K. Williams is teaming up with nonprofit organization NYC Together to help source summer job opportunities for the youth of New York City, according to Because of Them We Can. This year, NYC Together will host a virtual program and employ youth to disseminate information to about 500,000 people residing in New York City. “The summer is almost here, y’all. And everybody from the hood knows that when school gets out, the murder rate goes up,” Williams said in a video posted on Twitter. Here with an important message for y’all about Covid & its impact on NYC’s Black and Latino youth. To help them stay safe & healthy this summer, DONATE to @NYCTogetherOrg & you could win a private Zoom with me & other folks from The Wire! Donate here:
