TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Pima County One-Stop Career Center's Summer Youth Programs are back and anyone interested will need to sign up soon, because the deadline for applications is March 14.

The program allows young people, from age 14 to 21, to gain job experience and get paid in the process.

Last summer, approximately 1,450 local kids and young adults earned minimum wage working for Pima County, The City of Tucson, University of Arizona and dozens of local businesses, according to a press release from Pima County One-Step Career Center.

Participants spend between 20 to 40 hours a week working in the program.

The jobs range from discovery guide at the Children's Museum to surgery tech trainee at the Pima Animal Care Center.

Program manager Dana Katbah said they received 4,500 applications last year and selections are made based on applications, assessment scores and work interests.

Applications are accepted online at https://secure.pima.gov/summeryouth and anyone with questions can call Pima County Summer Youth Programs Hotline at (520)798-0546.
