Description

An investigation into Portland's Youth Opportunity Center, a troubled $20 million youth workforce training center in Portland, Oregon. The center is supposed to help inner-city youths land good jobs at decent wages--but was found to have squandered thousands of dollars and failed in its mission. "Out of 1,100 youths, YO claims to have served, only 63 have landed full-time, long-term positions that don't involve flipping burgers or pumping gas."
