Baltimore City residents between the ages of 14 and 21 can begin the 2017 YouthWorks summer jobs registration process by applying online at

Each year, YouthWorks matches thousands of city youth to summer jobs with for profit businesses, nonprofits and government employers throughout the region. They develop workplace skills, learn how to meet employers’ expectations, gain exposure to career opportunities in high growth industries, and feel the pride of earning a paycheck. YouthWorks summer jobs will operate two, five-week sessions, the first beginning June 26 and the second on July 10.

The online application is the first step of the YouthWorks summer jobs registration and will remain available for Baltimore City residents through Friday, March 10, 2017. Everyone who applies will be required to attend an in-person certification appointment in order to be eligible for a YouthWorks job. These certification appointments will be conducted after school and on Saturdays from late January through March.

There is a limit to the number of YouthWorks summer jobs. Applying online and attending an in-person certification appointment do not guarantee an offer for a YouthWorks summer job.

Worksite Registration

YouthWorks partners with a variety of organizations throughout the Baltimore City area that serve as summer worksites. Eligible worksites are not responsible for providing the funding to pay YouthWorks participants’ wages, but they are required to provide close supervision and mentoring to ensure workers’ full engagement throughout the program. Youth are scheduled to work five hours each day (excluding lunch), five days a week, for five weeks.
