Mercer County Executive Brian M. Hughes is excited to announce the 2020 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 program targets teens and young adults ages 16 to 24 who are economically disadvantaged and/or have barriers to employment. They will work and participate in work readiness training each week, and also can receive transportation assistance. Applications will be available online soon. Check back for updates.
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 email firstname.lastname@example.org . Thank you.
