Nlenu Not Available ST. PAUL, Minn. -- One of the highlights of Edinburg teen, Brandon Kartes's year was a day with a friend. Bran- don and Thomas Shephard of Crystal became friends when their two schools reorganized to tbrm Valley-Edinburg. Brandon, who has been blind from birth, was a 2012 graduate of Valley-Edinburg High School. Thomas, a 2011 grad, was an athlete who spent much of his time working hard on the basketball court. And Brandon, who was a musically gifted student, sang the National An- them at almost all of Thomas's high school home games. Since graduation they have managed to keep in touch and on Nov. 30. Brandon was able to spend the day at Northwest- em College in St. Paul. They did everything Thomas does in regular school day including going to class, lunch, spending time with Thomas's college friends, at- tending chapel, and he even had the opporttmity to partici- pate in a college choir prac- tice. At the end of the day Bran- don once again sang the Na- tional Anthem at one of Thomas's games. Of which, Thomas said Brandon "did a great job at our game vs. Buena Vista (Iowa)." and Above: Brandon and Thomas basketball game.

FARGO, ND -- In a national climate where employment among young people in the U.S. is at the lowest level since World War II, nearly two-thirds of teens and young adults in North Dakota are employed, which is the highest proportion in the nation. North Dakota leads the nation in the .agFowth of gross domestic product and per 7 .;capit inCSine : /ad the tdwest fine/n: ployment rate in the nation. These economic indicators are reflective of an economic shift that is bringing prosperity to the state and providing opportunities for many, including youth. In 2011, 63 percent of the people in North Dakota ages 16 to 24 had jobs. Na- tionally, 46 percent of teens and young adults were working. "However, not all North Dakota youth axe actively engaged," says Karen Olson with the North Dakota KIDS COUNT program at North Dakota State University. "Approx- imately 10,000 mens and young adults in the state are not in school and are jobless. This amounts to about 11 percent of all people ages 16 to 24. Many of these young people face numer- ous obstacles, according to "Youth and Work: Restoring Teen and Young Adult Connections to Oppommity" from the Annie E. Casey Foundation. Often described as disconnected youth, they encounter greater competition from older workers for increas- ingly scarce entry-level jobs, especially in light of the recession. They also lack the higher skill-set required fbr the well-paying jobs that are available. They often don't graduate from high school on time or are ready for college, which further decreases "While North Dakota has the highest pro- their employment options. Many contend portion of working teens ages 16 to 19 in the with hurdles beyond their control, such as nation at 46 percent, this ratio is down from growing up in poverty, having few working 57 percent in 2000," Olson says.

They may become adults unable to achieve financial stability and without employment prospects. They can present a significant cost to taxpayers because the government spends more to support them. In addition, the latest data from the U.S. Census Bureau's Cnrrent Population Survey shows more than 20 percent, or 1.4 million of these youths, have children of their own, which means their inability to find work and build careers can perpetuate an intergenera- tional cycle of poverty. The youth and work report presents state- by-state data and highlights how these issues are exacerbated among youth from low-in- come families and among minority popula- tions. Among black and Hispanic teens (ages 16 to 19), 16 percent are out of school and work, compared with the national average of 13 percent. Similarly, 29 percent of black young adults (ages 20 through 24) and 23 percent of their Hispanic peers are discon- nected, which exceeds the nation's 20 per- cent average. Teens that are employed also varies widely among states, from 18 percent in California and Florida to 46 percent in North Dakota in 2011.
