Baltimore YouthWorks Summer Jobs Program is one of the largest summer jobs initiatives in the nation. For the past 5 years, the goal has been to offer 8,000 City youth an opportunity to work and earn wages during the summer months. Built on the unspoken expected reality that a large percentage of black and brown youth would have unequal access to a summer job because of structural and institutional racism, YouthWorks prioritizes those most impacted – youth receiving public assistance, low wage families and youth connected to the Department of Juvenile Service.
