Applications Open for Summer Youth Employment Program

The Youth Opportunities Unlimited (YOU) summer youth employment program, renamed MyCITY, is now accepting applications. Youth between the ages of 14-18 who live in the City of Kalamazoo or attend a Kalamazoo Public School may apply now through April 23 April 26. The program, along with two other local youth programs, were the first to receive funding from the Foundation for Excellence. The additional funding will allow MyCITY to triple the number of youth hired for summer work. The program will offer not only paid work experience and career development but also resources on financial literacy and entrepreneurship. For more information and the application, go to
