CHICAGO (WLS) -- It's not too early to start thinking about summer.
Monday, Mayor Emanuel launches the "One Summer Chicago" application process.
More than 32,000 summer jobs and internships are available for 14 to 24 year olds. The program will run for six weeks from July 1 through August 9.
"One Summer Chicago provides more than a summer job, the program helps our young people build the skills necessary to stay on the right track and look forward to the future with confidence and hope," said Mayor Emanuel. "These are jobs that can help change the direction of a young person's life long after summer has ended, and I encourage everyone who can sign up to do so today."
A new program this year with One Summer Chicago is the Summer Fast Track, which provides high school seniors with a career and technical education pathway. About 200 high school seniors will take high school and college level CTE courses and access a basic certificate for free.
