"Summer employment provides young people with an opportunity to gain workforce readiness skills, engages them in positive activities during the summer, and links them to long-term career opportunities. An able and ready workforce is also critical in ensuring a robust economic future for our city. I am committed to providing summer jobs for our young people who live in the city. I am calling on our corporate partners and community organizations to work together with the City of Houston to Hire Houston’s Youth." -- Mayor Sylvester Turner
Hire Houston Youth provides local youth with an 8 week summer job or internship experience. In preparation for job placement, youth attend job readiness training one week prior to their start date. Students work for at least 7 weeks, earning at least $8 an hour.
