Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz celebrated the completion of a job well done when he welcomed Summer HEAT (Help Employ Ambitious Teens) participants and employers to Borough Hall. Summer HEAT is the Borough President’s summer youth employment program, which encourages Brooklyn businesses to invest in young people through employment.

Good work habits such as getting to work on time, dressing for success, and learning to start and complete projects and tasks are critical skills that Brooklyn teens gain during Summer HEAT. This event was an opportunity to say thank you to Summer HEAT partners and congratulations to the students who have started on the path to becoming successful adults in the workforce.
