National Youth Administration

   Established by President Franklin D. Roosevelt by executive order in 1935, the NYA was created to provide part-time work for college and high school students. More than 4 million young people were employed by the administration during its existence. Among them were many African Americans, and the NYA included a Division of Negro Affairs headed by Mary McLeod Bethune. The administration was absorbed into the Federal Works Agency in 1943.
