Mayor’s Challenge to Create Summer Jobs for Alameda Youth

The City of Alameda and the Alameda Unified School District (AUSD) are launching a “Summer Jobs Campaign” to encourage more employers to create summer jobs and internships for teens.  This is an excellent opportunity for local employers to meet our talented students who are eager to apply the skills they learn in the classroom to practical work experience.

Mayor Marilyn Ezzy Ashcraft has jumped in by creating a Mayor’s Challenge to have at least 200 paid positions each summer by 2020.  Any business that offers one paid summer position or more will be recognized on the Mayor’s Summer Jobs Honor Roll.  Employers are asked to pay teens at the City of Alameda’s new minimum wage of $13.50 per hour, which goes into effect on July 1, 2019.

So far, 23 employers have pledged to offer between 68 and 96 paid positions this summer to local high school students.  For more information about the Summer Jobs Campaign or sign up to be on the Mayor’s Summer Jobs Honor Roll, contact Eric Fonstein with the City of Alameda’s Community Development Department at  or 510-747-6895.
