Hire LA's Youth is a year-round youth employment program designed to give young Angelenos ages 14-24 their first work experience and place them on a career path as lifetime earners. The program helps young adults make the transition to their first or second job and sets them on a career path that benefit local businesses and LA's economy.

Los Angeles City Mayor Eric Garcetti has set a goal of 20,000 jobs by 2020, whether it’s a summer internship or year-round, full-time employment. Through the Hire LA’s Youth initiative, the City of LA partners with employers to help fill those positions.

If you are a local business seeking to give back, the Hire LA's Youth program is the perfect resource. Put a young person to work this summer and your business will benefit from having a highly motivated young adult in your workplace while giving them a crucial career building opportunity.
