One City One Hire is an innovative economic development strategy that serves as a catalyst to jump-start the Mayor's pledge to put all unemployed District residents--in every Ward of the city--back to work.
The In-School Program provides academic enrichment activities, work-readiness skills, project-based learning, life skills and leadership development. The goal of the program is to help prepare District youth to successfully transition from high school into post-secondary education, advanced training, unsubsidized employment, or a career in the military. During the school year, youth ages 14-18 will have the opportunity to participate in the In-School Program. To be eligible, youth must be a District resident and in grades 9 through 12. In-School Program participants will remain in this program until graduating from high school and will receive follow-up services.
The application process includes submitting all required eligibility documents and completing the Comprehensive Adult Student Assessment System.
