Hire One Youth

Hire One Youth Provides Job-Ready Quality Employees

By the year 2020, nearly half of the U.S workforce will be comprised of millennials. Will local businesses be able to find qualified candidates ready to fill positions soon to be vacated by our aging workforce? Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake’s Hire One Youth initiative:

  • Gives employers an opportunity to shape their future workforce by hiring at least one responsible, job-ready Baltimore City resident between the ages of 16-21
  • Prepares ideal candidates for future job openings,especially if a company’s entry-level positions require specialized skills
  • Screens all applicants for skills and interests and provides job readiness training before referring them to employers for interviews
  • Provides a job coach to ensure the program is beneficial for employers and youth
  • Offers flexible payroll options – employers can hire youth directly, or Baltimore City can be the employer-of-record (minimum cost of $1,500 per hire)
  • Can be customized to fit employers’ needs – there is no set wage or employment period beyond paying minimum wage or more for at least 120 hours

Hire One Youth was created by Mayor Rawlings-Blake in partnership with the Greater Baltimore Committee's Hire One Youth Leadership Team, chaired by GBC President & CEO Don Fry, and is a solid investment in your organization, your industry, and Baltimore’s economy. Please sign up to become a Hire One Youth employer. Call 410-396-JOBS (5627) or contact HireOneYouth@oedworks.com for more information.  

 "Hire One Youth streamlines the interviewing and hiring process for businesses looking for eager young workers interested in learning how to be successful on the job."
