ORLANDO, Fla. — If your teenager is looking for a summer job, the city of Orlando wants to help get them hired.
The city announced that it is expanding its annual summer work program for teens between the ages of 15 and 19.
They will receive financial literacy training and job experience, all while getting paid.
Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer said it is more than just a paycheck.
“It gives them a sense of having a work ethic and responsibility and commitment learning to show up on time and do a task and do it well,” Dyer said.
The teens will be paid $14 an hour with 30-hour weeks.
The city hopes to help 300 students find a job this summer, but it needs more businesses to take part in the program.
