City Youth Jobs

Information about the City's Youth Job Program.

Every year, the City of Albuquerque hires more than 1,000 youth to work and volunteer during the summer and in other seasonal jobs. Often, this is a young person’s first job, and can put them on a path to good employment opportunities after they graduate, either with the City or with other employers.  Access to early work experiences is one of the best ways we know to close the employment and income gaps that exist between White workers and workers of color.

Our goal is to help the City recruit and employ the best and brightest young people from all parts of our beloved community, including young people who come from diverse backgrounds and have unique life experiences and perspectives to bring. We welcome students from other countries and who speak languages other than English, recognizing that our whole city is enriched by the contributions of immigrants and refugees who have chosen to make Albuquerque home.

Please help us to recruit young people by sharing our links, social media and “how to” apply videos, as well as assisting them with applications and mentoring them on how to be successful applicants. We are hosting our annual Youth Job Fair on Saturday, Feb. 6. This time it will be virtual to follow social distancing guidelines. More information to come, so please check our website and social media pages often.  Thank you,
