Former President Obama surprised a group of students who were at the Obama Foundation offices, 5235 S. Harper Court, for a meeting of the Obama Youth Jobs Corps, a year-long workforce readiness training and internship program for high school sophomores, juniors, and seniors on the South Side. He listened to students discuss their experiences with the internship program and spoke about the importance of job training programs to create opportunities for young people.
