BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - The City of Birmingham Mayor’s Office Division of Youth Services’ (DYS) Kids and Jobs Program returns for the 2022 Summer.

The program introduces youth and young adults to the professional development necessary to become an integral part of the workforce.

The Division of Youth Services said Kids and Jobs was created because companies are oftentimes unwilling to hire youth between 14 and 15 years of age. The Exposure component of Kids & Jobs gives deserving Birmingham young people, a chance to experience the workplace for the first time.

On Saturday, May 21, 2022, the City of Birmingham Mayor’s Office Division of Youth Services will accept applications for the Exposure component (14 & 15 year olds) of Kids & Jobs at the Division of Youth Services, located at 1608 7th Ave North, Birmingham, AL 35203. The doors will open at 8:00 a.m. and close at 12:00 p.m. however, applicants must arrive during the timeframe assigned by last name. Youth must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. In order to apply, youth MUST reside in the Birmingham city limits and submit a completed application packet.
