San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee is planning to announce a new program Thursday that could mean as many as 5,000 summer jobs for the city's youth.

The jobs will be a combination of positions within private businesses and city government. The program, called "Jobs Plus," is collaboration with United Way Bay Area.

2,500 city government summer jobs will be made available for young people ages 16 to 24. Private businesses will match that.
