The city of Tacoma is looking for employers to mentor more than 100 high school students this summer.
The Summer Jobs 253 program is in its fourth year. Incoming juniors and seniors can get to up to 96 hours of paid work experience, learn work etiquette skills and earn up to two high school credits.
The program pays the students’ wages through a combination of city investments, grant and sponsorship funding, and a $700 employer contribution for each intern. Students will earn $10.35 per hour, the city’s minimum wage.
