OPPORTUNITY FOR OUR COMMUNITY TO HIRE YOUTH THIS SUMMER!
Entry-level Employees Available This Summer For No Cost
This summer, CareerTREKs Summer Youth Employment Program (SYEP) will employ over 200 Thurston County youth, ages 15-24. CareerTREK will cover the wages, taxes and L&I for these youth to work entry-level jobs in governmental, non-profit and local business organizations.
We need your help developing these worksites. As a worksite for SYEP, you will:
go on-line to www.communityyouthservices.org/employers , fill out a simple job
interview and hire an applicant who has an interest in working in your
organization (you will decide at the time of the interview if it is a good fit); and
have the support of experienced CareerTREK case managers to ensure the
success of all.
To be a successful worksite for SYEP participants, supervisors must enjoy young people and be able to provide training, mentoring and evaluation for the new trainee. There is no obligation to retain the employee at the end of the summer program.
For additional information, or to be become a worksite for the SYEP program, please contact:
