ALBANY, GA (WALB) – New numbers show Albany's unemployment rate dropped slightly in February.
At 11.4-percent, it's still high but even worse for teenagers.
The state will spend $200 million to put 20,000 Georgians to work this summer, 15,000 of those jobs are for young people.
At the Albany Boys and Girls Club 40 teens will get jobs. For eight weeks starting July 1st they'll be paid through the Georgia Department of Human Services TeenWork Program.
The club says the workers will give them needed help during the summer.
"It's a tremendous help for the teens of this community and help for our Boys and Girls Clubs. It fills needed positions that we don't have funding to fill," said Ed Deming, Albany Boys & Girls Club Executive Director.
The application deadline for the Teen Work program is April 16th.
All the money for the programs are from federal stimulus funds.
