Mayor's Office, Mayor's SummerWorks program putting 2,500 youth in jobs this summer

$500,000 in state funds will place 200 low-income youth in summer jobs

Date Published: 6/30/2015

For the fifth consecutive year, Mayor Greg Fischer’s SummerWorks program has grown and this summer is placing 2,500 youth, ages 16-21, in jobs at companies and organizations throughout the community. This year’s numbers include 200 jobs for low-income youth funded by $500,000 provided by the state Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF) program.

“It’s exciting to celebrate a fifth year of increasing summer jobs and this year making jobs available to more low-income youth thanks to the TANF funding from the state and other generous private donors,” Fischer said. “For many of these youth, this is a first work opportunity, which can be a life-changing experience. When we hear the stories of these young workers and talk to their employers about the value they receive, we know this initiative is making a real difference in their futures and the future of our community.”
