Each year through YouthWorks, the Mayor’s Office of Employment Development connects teens and young adults to meaningful summer work experiences throughout the Baltimore City region. Participants work in a wide variety of industries, including health care, hospitality/tourism, finance, construction, the arts, and environmental/green jobs.

Code in the Schools partnered with the Mayor’s Office Of Employment Development to create YouthWorks job sites, called "CodeWorks." Participants are building their technology skills, including computer programming, front-end web development, video game development and Microsoft certifications. One of four CodeWorks sites is located at the Union Baptist Church.
