City of Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown kicked off his 2017 Summer Youth Internship Program with a press conference at Medaille College on February 2. As the Mayor explained, applications are now being accepted for this paid internship program, and more than 1,400 positions are available for City of Buffalo youths.

“As part of moving Buffalo forward, we have to make sure our young people are prepared for the future,” the Mayor told the crowd. He described the program as offering “a meaningful and worthwhile summer work experience” for participants.

Mayor Brown was joined by Medaille President Dr. Ken Macur, several of the program’s work site supervisors and some Medaille students who served as youth interns in the 2016 program. The Mayor saluted Dr. Macur for his leadership at Medaille and positive impact on Buffalo, and commended the College for “doing a great amount to help build this city.”

To be eligible for the program, local youths must be City of Buffalo residents between the ages of 14 and 21. Applications are due by April 28, and can be found at city-buffalo.com or at City Hall, room 1701.
