Introduction

Fulton County Commissioners approved as part of its 2018 budget, a paid Summer Youth Internship Program, for youth ages 16-24. This opportunity is available to all youth who reside or attend school in the zip codes and/or schools identified below. Identified neighborhoods were selected based on concerns regarding factors.  These factors included juvenile crime and the absence of job opportunities for youth.  This program is also designed to address three categories involving youth at risk.

  • Prevention - At risk youth living in areas with low educational, economic, and social outcomes
  • Intervention - At risk youth who have failing grades, truancy, repeat disciplinary actions and behavioral/social issues
  • Rehabilitation - Adjudicated youth who are in the court system and at-risk of becoming repeat offenders or career criminals

The Summer Youth Internship Program focuses on four priority service areas. These focus areas include: providing economic access by establishing education to employment pathways for disconnected youth, increasing communications outreach, providing social and emotional learning programs that support quality out-of-school time, and ensuring safety and justice by providing young people with alternatives to unhealthy behaviors.

The Summer Youth Internship Program will provide tangible, paid work experience in a wide range of career fields. Limited slots available, participation in the program will be on a first-come first-serve basis.  

In order to participate, youth must be:

  • Between the ages of 16-24
  • A Fulton County resident
  • Eligible to work in the United States
  • In school and/or currently unemployed
  • Available between June 13th and July 17th ¬†
  • Able to work for five (5) consecutive weeks
  • (Maximum 150 hours) 30 hours per week.
