SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Mayor Bob Filner is calling on local businesses to invest in our youth by participating in the upcoming summer employment program Connect to Careers.
The goal of the program is to help address San Diego's ongoing job skills gap and provide meaningful work experiences to local young adults.
"What we are asking today is businesses both big and small to commit to the city of San Diego and our young people to hire students for at least 20 hours a week anywhere from $8 to $10 an hour and make sure these kids get the kind of education in the real world for their careers," Filner said.
Nearly 400 young adults have applied for summer jobs through the program. So far 60 companies have agreed to hire them.
