Safe Jobs for Youth
Most teens don’t know their rights and protections on the job, or how they can work together to make change in the workplace. Teaching curricula, fact sheets about labor laws for youth and parents, and resources are available from the Young Worker Health and Safety website. Youth can get involved in leadership academies, the teen “safe workplace” poster contest, and our annual Safe Jobs for Youth Month campaign in May. Coordinated by UC Berkeley’s Labor Occupational Health Program.
Grades: High school and up
