On Wednesday St. Paul Mayor Chris Coleman spent time talking about valuable lessons he learned from his first job.

It's part of the Right Track Initiative the city launched. Coleman says a third of youth from 16 to 19-years-old are unemployed in St. Paul.

The program aims to change that, and help provide resources to teens and encourage businesses to hire school youth this summer.

St. Paul Education Director Jane Eastwood stopped by our KSTP-TV studio to talk more about the program.
