Seniors become "foster grandparents" to job corps students in Washington DC (CNN)

A jobs center in Washington DC is using informal “foster grandparents”, who receive commuting allowance and possibly a small stipend, to help train unemployed youth and even young adults (including college graduates), in a CNN report by Athena Jones broadcast Saturday.

The example shown here was a cooking class.

The report covered Jobs Corps center where youth actually live as residents. 

Picture:  a restaurant in downtown DC that closed.  With the amount of demand in downtown, when will someone else move in and start a business?
