Mayor Barrett and Alderman Stamper to Announce $375,000 of New Funding for Earn & Learn

May 11, 2015

Today, Mayor Barrett and Alderman Stamper announced $375,000 of new funding to help create 200 new summer jobs for teens.  These jobs will be with community-based organizations like Running Rebels and will be part of his Earn & Learn Program.

Both Mayor Barrett and Alderman Stamper understand the value of summer jobs and the strength they bring to a community.  Young people take pride in their work, contribute financially to their households, set an example for younger siblings and learn how rewarding a job can be.

The Earn & Learn program helps provide Milwaukee youth with tangible work experience and is a part of the Mayor’s comprehensive public safety approach.  Under the leadership of Mayor Barrett, Earn & Learn has placed more than 22,000 students in summer jobs since its inception.
