500 Jobs (Chief's Summer Youth Employment Initiative)
The Greensboro Police Department is seeking employers and organizations for partnership to help provide 500 jobs to young people for the summer as a way to fight crime. An identified factor is lack of opportunities for our youth, especially during the summer months. In 2021, the Greensboro Police Department, along with its community partners launched the Chief’s 500Jobs Summer Youth Employment Initiative. For a second summer the Greensboro Police Department and its partners are seeking 500 jobs for youths, ages 14-21, to provide paid opportunities for a structured learning employment training environment.

To help our youth gain experience and prepare for a life beyond high school.
Although, we are aware that all teenagers may not go to college, we must help them plan for a
brighter future. They deserve an opportunity to grow and become civically engaged adults to
support and help our community. When we invest in our youth, it improves the quality of life
for our city, our neighborhoods, and our families.
