Lady GaGa is slipping into green tights and teaming up with the Robin Hood Foundation to give $1 million to charities that specialize in helping disconnected youth in NY.
Disconnected youth are anyone between the ages 16-24 who is not in school or the workforce. In other words, they’re kids who need help.
"I'm thrilled to be working with the Robin Hood Foundation to distribute funds to help the youth of New York City. NYC is my hometown and I think investing in these kids' future will go a long way.”
The charities in the running for the money are SCO Family of Services, Lawyers for Children, The Door, Hetrick-Martin Institute, and Safe Horizon.
Lady GaGa will do a charity concert on May 9 to commemorate the event.
