Mercer County Executive Brian M. Hughes is excited to announce the 2019 Summer Youth Jobs Connection, a program funded by the New Jersey Department of Labor & Workforce Development to provide paid summer employment and work readiness training for teens and young adults.
The Summer Youth Jobs Connection offered through the Mercer County One-Stop Career Center will be an eight-week program targeting teens and young adults ages 16 to 24 who are economically disadvantaged and/or have barriers to employment. They will work 20 hours and receive four hours of work readiness training each week, and also can receive transportation assistance. We will serve a minimum of 110 youth in this program.
We look forward to partnering with employers to provide quality work experience to the youth of Mercer County. If your organization is interested in becoming a work site, please complete the Employer Questionnaire below. Thank you.
