City of San Diego Mentorships with CONNECT2Careers

Program description

CONNECT2Careers is hiring young adults in the City of San Diego for paid training and mentorship opportunities with City of San Diego employees.

Mentees will participate in four weeks of part-time work-readiness training with C2C, after which they will be assessed for transit pass assistance and provided professional clothing through a partnership with the Gap Foundation. After training, mentees will join a City of San Diego employee for a 150-hour mentorship experience — typically over the course of 5-10 weeks.

All training and mentorship time will be paid by C2C. Wages start at $12/hour with an opportunity to increase to $13/hour after a midpoint evaluation during their work experience.

  • 16-24 years old
  • Live in the City of San Diego (residents of other cities in San Diego County are not eligible for the program)
  • Priority given to young adults who are not in school and not employed
