Today, our 6 Youth Climate Ambassadors toured the Sunnyside Solar Project, led by Dori Wolfe. They learned about one of Houston's oldest African American communities, environmental safety issues created by the former landfill, and how the project will provide various economic benefits to Sunnyside and rectify historical inequities - amplifying voices that have been excluded or left out of the climate change conversation.

The Youth Climate Ambassadors are focused on learning crucial community priorities and communicating Houston's Climate Action Plan to vulnerable and underrepresented communities.

As the school year winds down and summer heats up, Mayor Sylvester Turner encourages young people ages 16 to 24 to participate in his signature Hire Houston Youth program.

While all positions with the City of Houston have been filled, nearly 1,000 jobs are available in the nonprofit and private sectors for year-round and summer opportunities.

Job seekers can apply for positions in all industries, including retail and restaurants, transportation and logistics, nonprofit, healthcare, construction, and STEM.

"Now that the restrictions surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic are loosening, it is a great time to find a business in your field of study and gain experience with hands-on knowledge," said Mayor Sylvester Turner. "The Hire Houston Youth program is Houston's promise to the educational and employment empowerment of our youth. We are building stronger bridges to assist in the transition from school to work."

The program gives young people an opportunity to learn or build their job skills, network and earn a paycheck for the summer, or save for school.

The Hire Houston Youth program has reached tremendous strides, growing from 450 positions in 2015 to over 10,000 job opportunities in 2019. However, due to the pandemic, HHY transitioned to a virtual "earn and learn" program in 2020. The move allowed its participants to train and work in a remote setting.

A Hire Houston Youth Career and Resource fair will be held virtually on June 17, at 10 a.m. Youth can apply for jobs by visiting http://www.hirehoustonyouth.org. For more information, please visit our website or contact our team at [email protected].
