WASHTENAW COUNTY, MI -- Washtenaw County residents can sign up for paid work experience and mentorship this year through the SummerWorks program.

The SummerWorks program is for young adults between 16 and 24 years old, and is designed to provide them with tools, work experience, and exposure to different career paths.

This year program partners are hoping to reach more young adults than ever. According to their website, orientation will be on April 12. Participants will be working 10 weeks, 20 hours a week from June through August.

“This program is not just a summer job, but a more holistic approach to talent development for Washtenaw County’s young adults,” said Shamar Herron, Executive Director of Michigan Works! Southeast who helped launched the program six years ago. “By helping to develop their professional skills, exposing them to a number of new career paths, and connecting them with mentors in the community, SummerWorks’ young adults are ready to positively impact Washtenaw County’s economy now and in the future.”
