Catholic Relief Services will implement a project to develop skills for youths in those countries.

According to a U.S. Department of Labor announcement, a four-year project called Youth Pathways-Central American will provide training and employment services to approximately 5,100 low-income youths who live in areas with high rates of violence and are at risk of becoming involved in dangerous child labor.
