MILWAUKEE -- Mayor Tom Barrett launched this year's 'Earn and Learn program' at Summerfest Wednesday morning.
 
The program works with businesses to get teenagers summer jobs and internships. Barrett said the program not only provides a great opportunity, but also keeps teens out of trouble.
 
"...and we know that when young people don't have anything to do, that's when they are most likely to waste time, to get into trouble, to do all sorts of things adults don't like," Barrett said.
 
JP Morgan Chase bank donated $100,000 to help put Milwaukee teens to work.
