EVENT DETAILS
Many teenagers cannot find work over the summer. They are victims of a weak economy and a competitive pool of unemployed workers, including many adults that are willing to take jobs normally filled by teens. The majority of employment opportunities that are available to teens are in fast food and retail and do very little to build their resumes or their skill sets. Often times, only those teens that are fortunate enough to have connections through their family or school are able to find summer jobs that provide growth and skill-building opportunities and most of these jobs are not paid placements. For many teens (and their families), earning money over the summer is not optional, as this income is essential to their survival. 
 
The West Side YMCA has developed a program to address this need with Teen Career Connection. Last year, we received over 3,400 applications from teens throughout the city eager to participate in the program. Out of this group, we selected the 47 brightest and most qualified individuals. They were placed in top New York City companies and nonprofit organizations such as Deloitte, Deutsche Bank, and the Mandarin Oriental Hotel as well as nonprofits such as The Clinton Foundation, Children's Brain Tumor Institute, Susan G. Komen for the Cure NYC, Alvin Ailey Dance Company and numerous other outstanding organizations.
