Letter from the Mayor

Dear Washingtonians,

Tomorrow, on Saturday, September 9, we have two important opportunities for young people:

At Turkey Thicket Recreation Center, we are hosting 'Afterschool in the City' — an opportunity for families and caregivers to connect with over 50 organizations and agencies that provide afterschool and out-of-school time programming to young people in DC. If you are looking to get your child or teen connected to engaging activities after school or on the weekends, come to Turkey Thicket Recreation Center between 11:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. and find a program that works well for your child and family.

And downtown, at the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library, we are hosting a hiring fair for youth between the ages of 18 and 24. No registration is necessary — young people can just show up to the library between 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. with their resume and meet with potential employers. Need assistance printing your resume? The library can help with that too.

If you are older than 24 and looking for a new job or a new career path, we also have opportunities for you: DC is hiring. At DC Government, we have careers that offer good pay, good benefits, and a unique opportunity to make a positive difference in the community.
