Mayor Brown Kicked Off The 2014 Summer Youth Employment Program And Requests The Support Of The Business Community
February 6, 2014 - Mayor Byron W. Brown today announced that the application process for his 2014 Summer Youth Internship Program is now underway. The program will provide six weeks of meaningful employment and work-readiness training to city youth this summer. He also called upon local businesses to join him in his goal of providing an increased number of summer youth employment opportunities in the city of Buffalo.
“My annual Summer Youth Internship Program is critically important to our continued effort to ensure that our young people have productive, healthy options for summer activities that prepare them for the future,” said Mayor Brown. “I am pleased with the growing number of employers who have signed up and encourage other private sector companies to join our effort by providing employment opportunities to Buffalo teens.”
Private sector businesses can participate in the Mayor’s Summer Internship Program by hiring youth who have submitted applications with the Mayor’s Program. Those businesses that hire city youth may also be eligible for tax credits. If a business or any individual would like to sponsor a youth for the summer employment opportunity, they may do so through the Mayor’s Fund to Advance Buffalo. Not-for-profit and Community based organizations can also participate by providing a structured and supervised work environment for the summer and, through sponsorship and donations, the City of Buffalo will subsidize the wages of youth employed in these areas.
