Charlotte Mayor’s Youth Employment Program Helps Provide Career Experiences For Participants

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Julianna and Laresa sit down with Dawn Hill from the Charlotte Mayor’s Youth Employment Program.

MYEP seeks to build partnerships with host employers in the private, public, and non-profit sectors of Charlotte’s economy who are able to provide one-of-a-kind career experiences for MYEP participants.

Businesses provide career experiences that help youth develop career goals, stay in school, achieve academically, and enhance social skills that enable them to succeed in life. Students connect to the world of work which enables businesses and communities to know the needs and successes of the students and schools.​​​​
