The City's Youth to Work Program (Y2WK) brings together government institutions, community-based organizations and private sector companies to offer more than 700 employment and internship opportunities to youth.  

The 8-week program provides job readiness and life skills training to Cincinnati youth between the ages of 14-18 through internal City Departments or outsourced organizations. Youth will work between 20-30 hours a week from June to August earning $10.10 per hour (unless otherwise noted).

Employers include City departments, nonprofit organizations, and private sector partners. Youth are placed in career-oriented employment opportunities such as law enforcement, fire and safety, horticulture, recreation, art, technology and administration.

Jobs are posted through the City's NeoGov page and the Urban League of Greater Cincinnati. Direct links to the jobs are posted below.

The Hamilton County Summer Youth Employment Program has significant changes this year; many of which are mandated by Ohio Department of Job & Family Services:

Now there are two summer employment programs, these programs are separated by age groups. The 14 and 15 year old youth program is now referred to as Ohio Youth Works Program (OYWP) and the 16 and older program is a designed activity within the Summer ComprehensiveCase Management and Employment Program (CCMEP).

Youth in both programs will be required to engage in a comprehensive assessment tool and participate in writing their summer employment goals, known as an Individual Opportunity Plan. The older youth, 16 and older will have participation requirements that include other activities related to education, occupational skill training, leadership development opportunities, financial literacy, comprehensive guidance and counseling services and 90 days to 12 months follow-up services. The mandates of the youth employment programs will require more time of both the youth and staff. All participants must meet the 200% federal poverty income standard. Both summer employment programs will began on May 1st and end on September 30th 2017.
