Teens working on a teambuilding project.

Apply for the Raleigh Summer Youth Employment Program

Applications are now open

The City is now accepting applications for the 2021 Raleigh Summer Youth Employment Program! 

The five-week program helps teens ages 15 to 18 develop their skills and prepare for future employment by spending the summer working for the City of Raleigh. Summer youth employees will be able to work virtually or with limited face-to-face options for 20-30 hours per week. In addition to job training, employees will have the opportunity to receive mentoring from local lawyers, law enforcement staff, and business professionals.

To apply, please visit the City of Raleigh Jobs website. Each candidate will have to verify their Raleigh residency at the time of the interview. Interviews will be held through May 25, with the program starting on June 28.
