Baltimore's YouthWorks program returns for 51st year

For the 51st year, Baltimore City's YouthWorks program will connect thousands of young people with summer job opportunities, in the city and even beyond. More than 7,000 local youth have started their applications this year, and the city's reminding them that they must fully complete - not just start them - their applications by March 22 in order to get a spot. The program runs from July 8 through Aug. 9 this year and is open to teens and young adults ages 14 to 21. YouthWorks pays the state minimum wage of $15 an hour, and participants can work up to 25 hours a week. READ MORE:
