A state program that provides employment opportunities during the summer time for youth. Eligibility is based on the household income for the youth’s family must be less than 200% of poverty. Usually the duration of the program is 6-8 weeks. In addition to the youth being exposed to work, each youth receives an educational component which includes financial literacy. For employment opportunities, the youth may be placed with a not-for-profit organization, a governmental entity or in private business.
Thank you to all that have applied for this year's program. We are no longer accepting applications as we are now in the placement phase of the program. Thank you in advance to all the employers in the county that are providing positions.
