When you hire a young person, you are in a position to change the trajectory of their life, ignite their creativity, and mentor and shape their future, while providing them with a meaningful work experience. With summer job opportunities, young people are more engaged, more connected to community, and more likely to complete school.
You may find the talent your organization was missing. Help your organization, while helping the County's talented youth gain employment this summer.
