Our Earn & Learn Summer Youth Employment Program provides youth and young adults an entry-level 6-to-8-week work opportunity. Young people earn a subsidized wage for a maximum of 20 hours each week while developing work readiness skills, such as worksite communication and punctuality, and gaining job-specific skills and abilities. Work experiences available through our Earn & Learn Program range from developing culinary skills at the Wisconsin State Fair Park to working in medical facilities.
