D.C. is getting a new job training program for young people.
The Milwaukee-based community service program "Public Allies" is expanding into three cities, including Minneapolis-St. Paul, Orlando, Florida, and new programs in Washington. The expansion comes as Public Allies receives funding from the Corporation for National and Community Service.
Public Allies used to have an office in D.C. It's been closed since 2004 but will now be re-launched. The community service group provides 10 months of training for jobs with nonprofit organizations and in the public sector.
The group's CEO says they've received a record amount of applications for this program year.
