CHICAGO – Aiming to provide more opportunities for local youths over the summer months, state Rep. Camille Y. Lilly, D-Chicago, is highlighting the open enrollment period for One Summer Chicago’s summer jobs program to apply before spaces fill up.
“Nothing beats having a summer job,” said Lilly. “This program offers young adults seeking to learn about various sectors of life and employment a wealth of opportunities to choose from and broaden their horizons. Summer jobs help teach youth about responsibility while helping them decide what path they want to choose in life.”
One Summer Chicago brings together government institutions, community-based organizations and companies to offer over 31,000 employment and internship opportunities to youth and young adults ages 14 to 24. There is still room to apply for a summer-long job, and Lilly wants to make sure every young adult has the opportunity to participate. Interested youth can learn more and apply for a placement by visiting http://www.onesummerchicago.org/SummerJobs/.
“Each year, there are 31,000 internships or job availabilities that our youth can apply for, but opportunities are filling quickly,” said Lilly. “Nothing is guaranteed, but no one should miss out on trying to get a job for themselves over the summer.”
Lilly represents Chicago’s West Side, Oak Park, River Grove, Elmwood Park, Franklin Park and Melrose Park. Join her weekly newsletter to stay up to date with events and news from the 78th District.
