Greater Phoenix Urban League Youth Services

Empowering youth to become architects of their own success is our driving force. We achieve this by offering a comprehensive strategy that encompasses job readiness training, career coaching, financial literacy, career exploration, internships, and college opportunities, positioning youth for a future filled with achievement and purpose.

Our signature employment programs include the Summer Youth Empowerment Junior and Summer Youth Employment.

Our Summer Youth Empowerment Junior Program is a competitive 5-week employment program for teens aged 14 &15, teaching valuable job skills and experience.  These Junior participants earn $14.35 per hour.

The Summer Youth Employment offers youth aged 16 – 21 a 5-week paid internship experience.  Each participant is assigned a counselor to support their work experience. In addition to earning $15 per hour, participants who complete the required 110 hours of work and job readiness workshops receive an additional $500 at the end of the program.
