Van Buren Township

2024 REAL Summer Youth Employment Program


The 2024 REAL Summer Youth Employment Program is back!

The Van Buren Township's R.E.A.L. (Realizing Exceptionally Amazing Leaders) 2024 Summer Youth Employment Program, funded through a grant from the Detroit Wayne Integrated Health Network, is now accepting applications. 

The initiative empowers community youth to assist senior citizens in the VBT area by offering their time, creativity, and service.

The six-week program is open to students and young adults aged 14 to 24. The employment period runs from late June to mid-August, and participants must be available for the entire duration. 

They are required to have reliable transportation and be willing to work outdoors, providing light yard maintenance. The program guarantees 20 work hours per week, with a standard schedule of Tuesday through Thursday.

Applicants are encouraged to seize this opportunity to contribute positively to the community while gaining valuable work experience.
