YouthWorks is Baltimore City’s summer jobs program for residents between the ages of 14 and 21. Each year through YouthWorks, the Mayor’s Office of Employment Development (MOED) connects thousands of teens and young adults to meaningful summer work experiences throughout the city. Participants work in a wide variety of industries, including health care and social assistance, hospitality/tourism, finance, construction, the arts, and environmental/green jobs. YouthWorks is operated by the Mayor’s Office of Employment Development, with the assistance of employers and workforce partners, and with financial support from a variety of contributors.
