Fun Safe Philly Summer, a cross-agency program of the Nutter Administration, is hosting a free event for youth ages 14-21 to connect to local businesses offering paid part-time employment and apprenticeships, as well as volunteer opportunities.

Fun Safe Philly Summer is currently looking for businesses and organizations to help them in their efforts to meet the need for teen employment. In Pennsylvania, unemployment rates for youth are roughly 11 percent higher than those for adults, according to the 2014 Summer Jobs Challenge Fact Sheet, a collection of data put together by the Philadelphia Youth Network.

Philadelphia’s unemployment rate, also according to the fact sheet, is the highest compared to all other local areas in Pennsylvania. In addition, a report by the Annie E. Casey Foundation — a major advocate for youth in the region — stated that youth who miss out on an early work experience are more likely to endure unemployment later in life and are less likely to achieve higher levels of career attainment.

The job fair will take place at Howard Gittis Student Center at Temple University from 12 to 3:30 pm on April 26. The event will also offer professional development and financial education workshops to help prepare youth for the workforce and global economy. These include workshops on resume building, interview skills and financial basics.

Employers can register here. See all the opportunities available for teens and parents (and register) here.

Fun Safe Philly Summer also provides Philadelphia youth with resources for programming and opportunities to stay active and engaged all summer long, including summer programming for different age groups, free meals for teens under 18, and free activities for youth.
