Youth Employment Program Now Accepting Applications

Monterey County Department of Social and Employment Services

May 27, 2010

Salinas, CA – As part of local Workforce Investment Act activities and funding, the Monterey County Office for Employment Training is operating a Youth Employment Program for local youth ages 14-21.

The Youth Employment Program is seeking to place as many as 1,200 youth into a work experience opportunity to gain valuable, hands-on experience with a diverse range of local private, non-profit and government-sector employers.

We are seeking employers who are interested in becoming Employment Partner worksites to provide meaningful employment opportunities to full and part-time students. The Office for Employment Training will pay the employment wages and provide workers compensation coverage to the youth who qualify.

"We’ve used this program for several years. It has been wonderful for our business and great for the kids." Del’s Farmers Produce
