Fulton County Commissioners approved as part of its 2019 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.  This program is designed to address the following for 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 paid work experience in a wide range of career fields. Limited slots are available.  Eligible participants will be selected 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 12 - July 16, 2019
