Employers and youth needed for summer youth employment program

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Workforce Solutions South Plains is seeking employers throughout the 15-county region to participate in the Subsidized Summer Youth Employment program.

Partnering employers will host one or more youth during the summer months and provide work skills training and mentoring.

Funded through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, the program is designed to address the needs of low-income youth by imparting the work skills needed to remain competitive and ultimately reduce dependence on public assistance programs.

Each participating youth will work no more than 30 hours per week and will receive wages during their summer employment. Eligible youth must meet the following requirements:

• Must be age 16-24

• Must live in a family that receives supplemental federal benefits

• Youth ages 16-24 who are pregnant or considered a non-custodial parent are also eligible

Partnering public sector employers must ensure the wages of each workplace supervisor are not derived from federal funds.

All Subsidized Summer Youth Employment activities must be concluded by September 30, 2010.

Eligible youth who reside in the South Plains region will be required to complete orientation prior to summer employment.

Employers and youth ages 16-24 who are interested in participating in this region-wide skills training and mentoring program are asked to contact Workforce Solutions South Plains toll-free at 1-866-765-5038.
