Human Relations Commission to Host "Hire One Youth" Event March 25
Submitted by the City of Evanston


 In anticipation of the Mayor's Summer Youth Employment Program (MSYEP), the Evanston Human Relations Commission will host “Hire One Youth” to educate Evanston businesses about MSYEP on Tuesday, March 25 from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Downtown Evanston Starbucks, located at 1734 Sherman Ave.

“Hire One Youth” is a free informative and social event that will address the benefits of hiring the city’s youth. Attendees will have the opportunity to meet with the City’s Youth and Young Adult Program staff, as well as learn about the 50/50 Program and Job Fair, while getting the opportunity to network with colleagues from the community.

As a workforce development initiative, MSYEP emphasizes real-world labor expectations, increases the awareness of services offered by local community-based organizations, and provides opportunities for career instruction, financial literacy training, occupational skills training, social/emotional growth and support for Evanston youth between the ages of 14-18. The program gives participating youth up to nine weeks of entry-level work experience in a variety of jobs at community-based organizations, the City of Evanston and in the private sector.

In 2013, MSYEP employed more than 300 Evanston youth, which was a 46 percent increase from 2012. Mayor Tisdahl aims to grow that number to 500 for summer 2014.

“Hire One Youth” is open to the public and participants are asked to register online prior to the event, click here to RSVP. Those who RSVP will be provided with complimentary cup of Starbucks Coffee.
