Just Hire Me: New company aims to tackle teen poverty one job at a time
"There are millions of kids all over the world who are in poverty," Jones said. "The goal is to disrupt that and sort of get the community to bootstrap their way up."
Just Hire Me aims to match teen workers with neighbors or nearby businesses that want to hire them for small jobs or light chores. The neighbors and businesses fill out forms on the Just Hire Me website to explain what they need to have done. Teens that have gone through the company's training fill out online forms to explain their skills and availability.
