Working Today, for Tomorrow's Success.

Mayor Barrett’s Earn & Learn Summer Youth Employment program provides youth and young adults with a specialized, entry-level, eight-week work experience. Participants earn a subsidized wage for a maximum of 20 hours each week while benefiting from developing a variety of valuable experience,  including completing job applications, developing essential skills like worksite communication and punctuality, building specific job skills and abilities, and receiving training to make the job experience successful for the youth, their employer, and future employers.  The organizations participating in the program provide worksites, structured supervision, and work-readiness skills to youth. More specialized sub-components focus on building culinary skills at the Wisconsin State Fair Park, as well as performing environmental conservation work outdoors.
