Summer Youth Employment & Training
The Summer Youth Employment and Training program is designed to provide low-income youth the opportunity to work during the summer months and receive job-readiness training, soft skills, and work experience all while getting paid.
Who is eligible?
The Summer Youth Employment and Training Program is for low-income youth ages 14-17, who are income eligible and have little, no, or spotty work experience.
What services will I receive?
Below is a listing of all activities that may be provided by the Summer Youth Employment and Training Program:
- Summer employment opportunities directly linked to academic and occupational learning;
- Paid work experiences;
- Leadership development opportunities, which may include such activities as positive social behavior and soft skills, decision making, team work and other activities;
- Supportive services;
- Comprehensive guidance and counseling, as well as referrals to counseling, as appropriate to the needs of the individual youth.
What is expected of me?
Actively participate. Be on time. Speak up if you get in a jam. Strive for positive references.
Where can I expect to work?
We have contracted with several nonprofit agencies and local businesses for youth to gain employment experience. Through the generosity of our work experience sites, we have provided youth work opportunities in the fields of mechanics, health care, clerical, social services, animal care and construction, just to name a few.
