MD: YouthWorks 2020

Traditionally, YouthWorks has operated a five-week summer jobs program with youth working at one of over 600 sites across the city. While the program has been around for decades, each of the last five years, YouthWorks has offered over 8,000 youth a summer job. COVID has made a traditional summer jobs experience impossible this year. While this has led to many cities discontinuing their program, the program is too important to consider this in Baltimore. Thousands of households across the city count on YouthWorks to provide needed income for young people and their families. Young Baltimore needs engagement, skills enhancement, and the opportunity to earn, learn and grow
