LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - If you are looking for a summer job, and are between the ages of 14 and 24, WorkForce Solutions of the South Plains may be able to help. In the past, the agency has placed about 100 local youth with summer jobs as part of their Summer Youth Employment Program. This year they plan to increase that number to about 500 after receiving more than $1 million as a result of the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act.
The companies that hire the summer youth benefit because they do not have to pay wages themselves. Instead, WorkForce Solutions pays all the salaries and benefits in exchange for the experience the youth will gain.
If you are interested in participating in this work program either as a worker or an employer, WorkForce Solutions of the South Plains at (806) 771-3815 for more information.
