The Mayor's SummerWorks Program

A Summer Jobs Success!

It's a fact: a summer job does more than just provide youth with a paycheck. The summer work experience develops critical workplace skills that students can use throughout life. 

This video features corporate donors, employers and young workers talking about what The Mayor's SummerWorks Program has meant to them. Watch and learn how you or your company can join in the SummerWorks success! You can also read about the program by clicking here.

SummerWorks has grown each year since Mayor Greg Fischer started the effort right after taking office in 2011. In 2015, SummerWorks helped place more than 4,000 youth in summer work experiences.
