Youth Job Fair - 2023
The Park District's Virtual Youth Job Fair was held on Saturday, February 11, 2023. Whether you like spending time outdoors, working with the community, or lifeguarding, we have a wide variety of opportunities for youth, young adults, and students. The Job Fair is designed for applicants who are ages 15-24, although the minimum age requirement for most jobs is 16 years old.
If you missed the job fair, take a look at the 2023 Youth Job Fair Presentation (PDF) to learn about job opportunities, the application process and application tips.
