Young people throughout Milwaukee County interested in a summer job are encouraged to apply, 14- to 21-year-olds are eligible, but due to limited funding, priority will be given to 16- to 21-year-olds.

“As a result of Earn & Learn, I’ve achieved many accomplishments. I learned that hard work pays off,” says Alexandria Millet, Earn & Learn youth worker.
