Glendale Youth Alliance – Summer Youth Employment Program

Glendale Youth Alliance

On March 2, 2015, Glendale Youth Alliance will begin accepting applications for the Summer Youth Employment Training Program. This program provides low-income youth ages 14-21 with life skills, pre-employment training and paid jobs during the summer months.

Youth ages 14-16 will have an opportunity to partake in the Brush Clearance Program. On closely supervised teams, they will spend six weeks removing overgrown brush on over 30 parcels of city owned land and reducing the risk of fire on the city’s hillsides. Youth between the ages of 17 and 21 will be placed in jobs throughout the community such as the local hospitals, non-profit & for-profit organizations including libraries, schools and retail stores.

Applications are available online at or at the Verdugo Jobs Center located at 1255 S. Central Avenue in Glendale.
