In downtown Chicago, there are multiple jobs available. People have signs on the doors. Multiple job fairs are going on. Where are the jobs? The entry-level jobs are downtown Chicago.

Sounds like you have put together some great programs. I think your teens would also really like myfirstpaycheck.com, created by 17-year-old Celeste Lavin and her 23-year-old brother, Austin, MyFirstPaycheck.com is a job-posting site for young adults. Along with job and volunteer opportunities, Myfirstpaycheck.com provides advice and resources to help young people have a more successful job application process. Myfirstpaycheck.com is also a valuable resource for companies searching for an online outlet to hire temporary, seasonal and part-time employees.

If you are looking for jobs in Chicago, I would suggest starting with a job search site like http://www.chicagojobs.com/. I would also try contacting your local library to see what tips they may have for you. http://www.chipublib.org/
