Summer Youth Employment Program -- The university is teaming up with the Futures Program in Baltimore City and the Mayor's Office of Employment Development to increase the chances of Baltimore city high school students staying in school. The career exploration program will run from Monday, July 2, through Friday, August 3. The students will work a 30-hour week and will be paid minimum wage by the Office of Employment Development.

By providing quality experiences, a chance to perform learning-rich assignments and to acquire or practice work place know-how, the youth will hopefully be motivated to meet academic expectations, earn a high school diploma and enter meaningful employment or further schooling.

Departments interested in working with a city high school student through the summer program should contact Eden Blum at 410-516-0345 or or Judy Peregoff at 410-516-6060 or go to
