Mayor's Summer Youth Employment Program

The Mayor’s Summer Youth Employment Program is now accepting applications from youth aged 14-21.   There will be both in-person and virtual opportunities this summer, so please be sure to indicate your preference on the application.  We are working with our in-person work sites to write safety protocols due to the ongoing pandemic.  Please understand that due to the ongoing pandemic, there may not be an exact match between your desired worksite and your placement this summer, if you are interviewed and accepted into the program.  

 The majority of applicants will need to meet grant eligibility criteria for a position, so please read the questions carefully.  There are also a very limited number of positions available for young persons who do not meet grant eligibility criteria.  

 We strongly encourage youth to complete their own applications and for youth workers to communicate with us directly.
