YouthWorks Summer Jobs

YouthWorks Summer Jobs

 --> Become a YouthWorks worksite. Government agencies, non-profit organizations, community groups, and faith-based organizations that would like to serve as YouthWorks worksites can register online at http://youthworks.oedworks.com/. Young people will be placed in summer jobs with your organization and you will provide supervision and mentoring. These positions are already funded.

 --> Become a Hire One Youth employer. Private-sector businesses can join Baltimore City in creating summer jobs by hiring young people through Hire One Youth. Employers can learn more and sign up at: http://www.baltimorecity.gov/hireoneyouth/.

 --> Make a donation. YouthWorks welcomes tax-deductible donations to pay the wages of youth placed at public sector worksites. It costs $1,500 to fund one young person in a YouthWorks summer job, but contributions of any amount are greatly appreciated. YouthWorks is now accepting online donations through the Baltimore City Foundation. Please visit baltimorecityfoundation.org and choose Mayor’s Office of Employment Development – YouthWorks 855-00 – to make your contribution. Checks can also be made payable to Baltimore City Foundation/YouthWorks and mailed to MOED, 101 W. 24th Street, Baltimore, MD 21218.

--> Talk about why summer jobs matter. If you know employers that could hire young people or serve as worksites, or organizations that could make donations to support our program, please refer them to the Baltimore City Mayor’s Office of Employment Development (MOED), which leads Baltimore City’s summer and year-round youth employment efforts – 410-396-JOBS (5627) or summerjobs@oedworks.com.
