Mayor’s 100 Campaign









Mayor's 100 CampaignThe Mayor’s 100 is a campaign to identify 100 businesses to partner with the City of Grand Rapids to provide meaningful jobs for young people in high school and in college. These are businesses who have agreed to help young men and women in Grand Rapids become part of the local economic mainstream by providing valuable work experience and in return, receiving valuable worker contribution to the bottom line at half the cost!

The City of Grand Rapids and businesses would share 50/50 the cost of employing a young person for up to 150 or 240 hours.
