STEP-UP program seeks Minneapolis youth for 2010 summer jobs

The Minneapolis STEP-UP program that teaches students good work habits and places youth in paid internships at businesses, schools and government agencies throughout the city is now seeking applications. Minneapolis youth, ages 14 -21, who would like to participate in the 2010 STEP-UP summer jobs program should submit an application (pdf) now through Jan. 29, 2010.

Youth, ages 14 and 15, are offered a first job experience and matched with positions at non-profits. Youth ages 16-21 are matched with jobs in private businesses, government and education. Youth interested in the STEP-UP program will need to complete a competitive application process and attend a work readiness training session to be considered for a summer position.

Applications are also available at the Minneapolis North and South Workforce Centers, Minneapolis Public schools, many non-profit organizations and the Franklin, North Regional and Central libraries.
