THE BRONX - Young people looking for a summer job may be able to find one through a program run by the Department of Youth and Community Development.

The Summer Youth Employment Program plans on placing 34,000 jobs in the hands of young people aged 14-24. The jobs available include working with the New York City Parks Department, at day care centers, day camps, local hospitals, offices, non-profit agencies and more.

The deadline for registration has been extended until Wednesday, May 22.
