Providing a first-time work experience is one of the things Y.O. U. typically do for the children. And thanks to the collaboration between the city of Cleveland and Y.O.U, not all of the city’s youth spent the summer roaming the streets, wreaking havoc. Through this partnership, many gained valuable experience by working at the city’s Department of Water (DOW) in Harvard Ave., one of the many sites provided throughout Cleveland.
