Mayor’s Youth Employment Program

Post Date:03/02/2023

Summer 2023 will mark the Mayor’s Youth Employment Program’s 13th summer.  This program offers traditional underserved City of Stamford high school students the opportunity to work in the public, private, and nonprofit sectors.  Students will have 140 hours of work at $15.50 and 30 hours of work-readiness leadership classes. 

The students work at their internships from Monday, June 26th through Thursday, July 27th for 28 hours a week Monday through Thursday. 

Not only does this strengthen our city’s youth, but it also provides a more vibrant future for Stamford.  Please consider learning more about the program and supporting our efforts by hosting a student or helping fund their placement.  It’s an excellent opportunity to be exposed to new experiences, and we rely on our community partners to make this program possible. 

Please out to Michelle Lappas, our Program Manager, at or 203-977-0830 with any questions (
