Summer jobs for teens

DHS works with the Philadelphia Youth Network (PYN) to provide teens with summer jobs through the Work Ready Program. To apply to this summer employment program you must be:

  • Between the ages of 14–21.
  • A resident of Philadelphia.
  • Not enrolled in college.

The summer program provides dependent and/or at-risk youth with a six-week summer employment experience. These experiences provide 120 hours of workforce preparation services and career exposure to the most vulnerable youth.
