"Hundreds and hundreds of City Honors students have taken advantage of this program. They've earned income. They've gained experience, and they've provided service to our city, and it's an invaluable asset."

Applications can be downloaded from the city's website or they can be picked up in Room 1701 in City Hall. Trainings run for 20 hours per week from July to August.

The program has provided more than 22,000 employment opportunities since 2006.
