PROJECTFIRSTJOB.COM - PAYING STUDENTS TO STAY IN SCHOOL? IT'S THEIR FIRST JOB!
Los Angeles, CA (BlackNews.com) - Millions of students attend our public high schools to receive crucial preparation to eventually go to college or join the workforce.
Yet, in many urban cities, more than half of all high school students drop out, and too many of those who finish high school are not ready for higher education, training or the workplace.
There must be a paradigm shift to empower them to stay in school and succeed in life.
Here is a solution: ProjectFirstJob.com
ProjectFirstJob.com is a Los Angeles based company that will pay students to STAY in SCHOOL thus creating their FIRST JOB.
ProjectFirstJob.com is a perpetual fundraising paradigm shift away from the current trend of cookies, candy and the like. However, ProjectFirstJob.com's funding doesn't get lost in bureaucratic red tape. It goes directly into the hands of those who need it.
The current economic down-turn isn't just impacting businesses; it's undermining students who come from cash-strapped families who feel the pressure and dropout. By enrolling in ProjectFirstJob.com, the students can earn cash and stay in school. How? By just turning on their computers and connecting with their peers.
Millions of students have a MySpace page. Students will earn $100 for every 60 MySpace friends who add a 1iMALL.COM banner to their MySpace page. The funds to pay the MySpacers are generated from 1iMALL.COM, an ecommerce collaborative. The funds are issued via an Asset Card provided by TheWealthCapitalGroup.com in junction with TheCIPway.com.
MySpace.com is a registered trademark of News Corp. and is not affiliated with ProjectFirstJob.com or 1iMALL.COM.
ProjectFirstJob.com has other dynamic teaching components for the MySpacers. It will teach social skills (TRUE FRIENDS vs. Friends) and financial literacy (ASSET vs. Debt).
The following Southern California schools are being targeted by ProjectFirstJob.com: Locke High School, Crenshaw High School, Washington Preparatory, Audubon Middle School and The Los Angeles School of the Arts.
Here is a snap shot of some statistics associated with dropouts:
* A high school dropout earns about $260,000 less over a lifetime.
* America loses about $192 million in combined income and tax revenue due to dropouts.
It is time for a change. Provide financial incentives to students with ProjectFirstJob.com and get a new workforce ready for success.
