Earn & Learn internship applications due April 4
Online applications are now being accepted for the city’s 2014 Earn & Learn Summer Youth Internship Program. Applicants who are selected for a city government internship will work 20 hours a week for eight weeks (beginning June 20, 2014), and will earn $7.50 per hour.
To qualify for a city internship, applicants must be between the ages of 16 and 19 and live within the Community Development Block Grant area. Individuals who have previously held a city government internship position are not eligible to be hired a second time.
Earn & Learn is the City of Milwaukee’s program to help young people make a successful transition from adolescence to adulthood by providing opportunities to develop work-readiness skills while they earn wages working in government, community- and faith-based organizations and private sector businesses.
Applications will also be accepted in early Spring for job slots administered by the Milwaukee Area Workforce Investment Board. MAWIB accepts paper applications from youth ages 14 through 21 who live anywhere within the city limits.
