We Help Youth Launch Bright Futures

Did you know Beyonce earned extra money growing up sweeping hair in her mother’s salon? And Warren Buffet’s first job was working at a grocery store? WorkHere partners with municipalities, high schools, post-secondary institutions, and private enterprises to grow strong, local workforces that put youth to work — because learning what you like to do and how to work with people are skills that never go out of style.

According to the BLS, teen labor force participation is on a downward trend, having dropped 19% in the recent decade. However it’s a fact that young people who have jobs in their teens out-earn their peers over a lifetime. According to JP Morgan Chase, people who started working in their teens out-earn their peers by 25% — that’s a huge leg up in life. These workers earn more and are able to reach a higher quality of life because they learned and developed skills such as communication, responsibility, time management, initiative, and teamwork at a young age. Working as a teen also boosts self-confidence and independence.
