STEP-UP program seeks Minneapolis youth for 2011 summer jobs

The City of Minneapolis STEP-UP Program is now accepting applications from youth ages 14-21. STEP-UP trains and places Minneapolis youth in paid internships during the summer at local businesses. Youth earn a minimum of $7.25 to upwards of $10 an hour. Most interns work part-time for up to 9 weeks during the summer. Youth selected to participate in the STEP-UP program must attend the mandatory work readiness training in April to be considered for a summer position.

2011 summer job applications will be accepted through Feb. 4, 2011.
