Montgomery County Summer YouthWorks:
In 2013, 1,245 Montgomery County youths were placed at 275 work sites in various industries. The youths' wages are provided through State and County funds, which is a tremendous benefit to the participating businesses. This collaboration provides the work experience and guidance needed to create a strong and informed future workforce.
In 2014, YouthWorks will provide employment opportunities for 2,000 young people that will help shape their future and create a generation of career informed youth.
In order to provide the most benefit to the youth, we are looking for an additional 300 employers willing to participate as worksites.
Montgomery County will: • Approve applications • Contribute the salary for the youth • Issue Workers Compensation insurance • Provide Job Readiness Training • Perform case management services for all youth
Participating businesses will: • Identify positions, required skills, and attire for participating youth • Employ youth between the ages of 14-17 for 8 weeks during the summer of 2014 • Agree to deliver a valuable work experience and knowledge of your industry by training, mentoring, and evaluating the youth
