All News & Events

On July 11, 2017 Mayor Libby Schaaf joined representatives from UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital Oakland, OUSD, and young Oakland residents to announce that 300 additional summer jobs are now available for Oakland’s youth through the Mayor’s Summer Job Program. The 300 new available positions bring the total number of jobs, this summer alone, up to the Mayor’s stated goal of 2,000 jobs.

The Mayor’s Summer Job Program aims to expand the paid opportunities available to Oakland youth and provide Oakland employers a way to invest in youth by either hiring or sponsoring a young person.

In order to apply, youth must reside in Oakland and be between 16 and 24 years of age. Interested youth and companies/organizations may email youthjobs@oaklandnet.com for more information.
