At the Career Fair, more than 400 youth, ages 16 to 21, who successfully completed work readiness training, will be interviewed by representatives of 78 businesses and organizations committed to hiring youth for the summer.

The Career Fair is a feature of YouthWorks, Mayor Martin O’Malley’s summer jobs program for Baltimore youth ages 14 to 21. Last year, 5,797 youth were provided with job opportunities through YouthWorks. Students worked in private and public sector jobs in industries such as telecommunications, retail, law, and hospitality. The general registration deadline for YouthWorks is May 28, but already (as of April 26) more than 4,800 youth have already registered for the program.

Subsidized employment through YouthWorks will begin July 12 and end on August 20. Private sector jobs may start anytime after the end of the 2003-2004 school year and may continue for longer than six weeks.

YouthWorks is a service of the Baltimore Workforce Investment Board Youth Council, the Mayor’s Office of Employment Development and multiple workforce partners. YouthWorks supports youth in learning about work and careers and allows area employers to help develop the future workforce.
