Hire One Youth

Businesses help make Baltimore City’s summer jobs program
a success by interviewing and hiring at least one participant through YouthWorks’ Hire One Youth initiative. With support from a Hire One Youth Leadership Team comprised of local business leaders and chaired by Donald C. Fry, president and CEO of the Greater Baltimore Committee, Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake is inviting companies to become Hire One Youth employers in 2015. Beginning its fourth year, Hire One Youth has proven to be a valuable public-private partnership resulting in hundreds of talented and prepared young people working for local businesses throughout the summer. Read why Don Fry thinks Hire One Youth is good for Baltimore's businesses.

More information about Hire One Youth and a sign-up form can be found at http://www.baltimorecity.gov/hireoneyouth/. Check out this YouTube video or contact the YouthWorks office at HireOneYouth@oedworks.com.

Important Dates to Remember

Success Story

Brendon WilliamsBrendon Williams, 19, has spent the past two summers working at ABC Box Company in South Baltimore through Hire One Youth. When he was first hired by the company in 2013, it was his first job. Alan Fink is the co-owner of ABC Box Company. “The city makes it so easy to participate in Hire One Youth,” said Mr. Fink. “It makes us feel good that we can bring aboard someone fresh out of high school and make their first job experience a positive job experience.”


Brendon – who caught two buses each workday this past summer to arrive at ABC Box Company by 8:00 a.m. – said working for the company has taught him “how important it is to be on time and work hard, and how to communicate with an employer.” He added, “I was able to prove that I’m a good worker, I’m a hard worker, and I can tackle any job you give me.”

Mr. Fink agreed. “Brendon is enthusiastic; he has the drive to make it.”

Brendon graduated from Patterson High School and is currently taking classes at the Community College of Baltimore County, Catonsville. He plans to transfer to the University of Maryland to study business management.
