Youth Employment

The Office of Economic Development supports career experiences for young people so that they can see what drives Seattle's economy. By providing career connected activities early and often, supporting credential and training programs, and creating on-ramps to employment, youth can begin to make the connection from education to careers. Through our investments and partnerships, Seattle's youth are supported and prepared to access jobs and careers in our growing economy, and our region's employers will have the local talent they need to thrive.
