NEW ORLEANS, LA — Tomorrow, Tuesday, April 16, Mayor Mitch Landrieu and City officials will lay out the summer recreation and job opportunities for New Orleans youth to be offered by the New Orleans Recreation Development Commission and JOB1.

NORDC will offer 32 youth (ages 4-12) camps which will serve 3,690 kids across the city through partnerships with schools, non-profits and faith-based organizations.

There will be 7 teen camps (ages 13-17) which will serve 1,000 teens across the city.  In partnership with the 2013 NOLA Youth Works Summer Employment Program, teen camps will offer local teenagers career exploration seminars to allow for exposure to a variety of job fields. Additionally, teens will earn a stipend of $75 per week.

NOLA Youth Works, administered by JOB1,  aims to provide quality summer opportunities to teenage youth (ages 14-21) to cultivate a career-ready workforce by providing meaningful skill-building support, career exploration and access to entry level jobs in high-demand industries.
