What is the Youth Employment Mentorship Program? 

Summer of 2020 the City of San Antonio's Department of Human Services took part in surveying and interviewing opportunity youth of all ages and backgrounds.  Through this research we found that professional development training was one of the most desired and most requested resource.  The Youth Employment Mentorship program has proven to fill to these gaps.
Opportunity youth aged 18-24 will take part in a twelve week pathway driven professional development program that will equip them with workplace and interpersonal skills to successfully secure employment. Employment Mentorship includes one-on-one mentorship, work experience opportunity, incentive resources and professional development training including Office 365, LinkedIn, Resume Building and more from our partners at Microsoft.

Program staff then reviews employer job descriptions and matches students to the opportunity that best aligns with the interns’ goals. Employers will then receive the intern resume for review.  Mentors will then notify interns once they have been accepted by an employer.
