Applications for Buffalo’s 2023 Summer Jobs Program Now Available
It may be hard to think about it now considering the weather we've had so far, but summer is right around the corner. The arrival of summer also brings with it the arrival of our kids being out of school. Once school ends, you don't have to have your kids just lying around all summer because there are going to be plenty of summer jobs available for them to work this year.
For many people, this is the first taste of working and earning money for youth and young adults in Buffalo. It's also a great opportunity to gain some valuable work experience, make some great networking connections, and potentially gain some important skills that will help for years to come. We also can't forget the best part, which is getting paid of course.
The Summer Youth Internship Program is set to start in July 2023 and will run for 6 weeks until the middle of August 2023. Young adults will work up to 20 hours per week for those 6 weeks.
