BENTON HARBOR — The 60 teens taking part in the Benton Harbor Summer Youth Work Program are doing more than earning money.

They are learning skills that will help them get jobs for the rest of their lives, Benton Harbor Commissioner Jerry Edwards said while volunteering to help supervise the teens cleaning up Broadway Park on Tuesday.
