         Mayor's  Summer Youth Employment Program
                                                          Connecting Youth with Employers


The Mayor's Summer Youth Employment Program prepares youth ages 14-18 for job via pre-employment workshops and matches them with employment opportunities where they can explore a profession, learn a skill, learn to navigate in a business environment, contribute to the community, and earn money.  The program operates for six weeks in July and August. Youth workers work 25 hours per week and earn minimum wage ($8.70).

Before youth are assigned to a worksite, they spend one week in intensive workshops learning appropriate business behavior, business dress and employer expectations.  They also participate in financial literacy workshops so that they learn to manage the money they earn.

Applications are available online through March 31sth. Must be a Norwalk resident.

                        
We cannot always build the future for our youth,
                                   but we can build our youth for the future.
  
                                                                                                                   ~Franklin Delano Roosevelt
