OUSD-3-Earn-and-Learn-youth-summer-employment-sized.jpg#asset:17482The City of Oakland’s Workforce Development Board and its partners are working to ensure thousands of Oakland youth are given the opportunity to Earn & Learn this summer.

Are you an Oakland youth 16 to 24 looking for a summer job? Visit our youth services page.

Businesses can participate in three ways:

1. Directly hire a young person this summer
2. Donate to support placement of a young person through Earn & Learn East Bay
3. Host a young person at your worksite (sponsored by Earn & Learn East Bay)

Our team can pre-screen applicants to match their skills to your talent needs. Plus, we’re here throughout the summer to support your success and their job development.

Be a Champion for Oakland’s Youth & Business Community! Use this form to indicate your interest.
