Youth Employment

Youth Employment Program interns are placed in a wide range of high-demand fields.


**United Way of Northeast Florida’s Youth Employment Program is on hiatus for summer 2016. Stay tuned for more information as the program progresses.**


Jacksonville has a pool of students who are motivated to work and ready to acquire the skills and experience needed for the 21st century workforce. All they need is an opportunity.

For four years United Way of Northeast Florida’s Youth Employment Program has provided more than 400 teens ages 16-19 with job readiness training, individual coaching, financial education, exposure to careers matching their talents and interests, and paid internships thanks to support from the Jessie Ball duPont Fund, JP Morgan Chase and the Bank of America Charitable Foundation. Youth are matched with local companies and nonprofit organizations for paid, six-week internships that help them gain career experience.

Thank you to our host companies!
