The city of Chicago's summer jobs program will provide employment for 19,000 young people this summer.The mayor says there will be 650 more jobs available than last year. People between the ages of 14 and 24 are eligible.

"When students work during the summer, they discover what's expected of them in the workforce, they acquire great job skills and education that will help them the rest of their lives," said Daley.
