Youth Employment Program at ETHS on April 19


The Mayor's Summer Youth Employment Program (MSYEP) will host a job fair on Saturday, April 19 at Evanston Township High School, 1600 Dodge Ave. Local employers are encouraged to support the workforce development initiative by participating in this year’s job fair to help reach Mayor Tisdahl's goal of providing 500 jobs to Evanston youth this summer. 

Interested employers must register for the event by Wednesday, April 16 by calling Youth and Young Local Employers Encouraged to Participate in Youth Job Fair April 19Adult Assistant Program Manager Porschia Davis at 847-448-8049 or emailing

To kick off the youth employment campaign, the Human Relations Commission hosted the “Hire One Youth” event on March 25 to educate potential employers about the upcoming job fair and 50/50 Program, which provides employers with the option to partner with the City to pay half of the employee’s salary, if they cannot afford to pay it in full. 

The City has already secured several commitments from local employers, but participation is needed by additional businesses to ensure youth and young adults in search of employment will be provided with job opportunities.

The fair will be held from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. and is open to Evanston youth and between the ages of 14-18. This employment program provides 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.

For more information about the Youth Job Fair, visit or call 3-1-1 (847-448-4311 outside of Evanston). To volunteer at the event, please visit
