The White House issued a call to action it named "Summer Jobs+," part of President Obama’s “We can’t wait” campaign against a gridlock-prone Congress.

The initiative is a show of cooperation between the federal government and private sector entities with the goal of creating 180,000 employment opportunities for low-income youth in the summer of 2012. The program will include a Summer Jobs+ Bank, a one-stop digital resource for the digital generation, the statement says.

Bon Jovi is also a member of Obama's White House Council for Community Solutions.
