Youth Development Mentoring Program at Michigan Works!

Over the summer 60 young adults will have the opportunity to learn and work while earning a paycheck.

For the 9th consecutive year, The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) and the team at Michigan Works! through Kinexus, have joined forces for a Youth Development Mentoring Program.

This program is designed for young adults between the ages of 16-24. Graduation from high school or on track to earning a diploma, as well as no violations of the law on their record are required for all applicants.

Those offered the job can expect to be working 37 hours a week from June-September.

Workers will do 21 hours of physical labor a week such as park and ride maintenance and grounds keeping. The remaining 16 hours of the work week will be focused on educational and cultural enhancement that goes along with engineering and transportation career principals.

Don Marshall, Program Manager for the Youth Development Mentoring Program, has high regards for the summer program.

“The program exposes them to the importance of showing up on time, being accountable, and many of the other soft skills that they must know before they enter the workforce, college, and life in general,” Marshall said.

To apply for the Youth Development Mentoring program, visit and search for MDOT Crew Member in Benton Harbor. All Applications are due by Friday, June 7th. For more information, contact Don Marshall, Program Manager at (269) 927.1064, x1192, or
