Youth employment program taking applications

Posted: Updated:

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - A job fair will take place on Thursday and Friday for Mahoning County's Department of Job and Family Services "Summer Youth Employment Program."

The program is for 14-to-24 year olds who live in low-income households.

Last year, 120 young people from around the Mahoning Valley completed the program working at various jobs around the county.

Gwendolyn Graves with Mahoning County Job and Family Services says any youth under the age of 18 interested in applying would need their parents to fill out the applications

Applications are being accepted at Youngstown's One Stop satellite office at the Oakhill Renaissance Building entrance D from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. March 28th and March 29th.

Appllications can also be filled out on April 2 and April 4.

The employment runs from May 15 through August 31. Five young people were hired on permanently after working in the program last year.

In 2012, job and family services received $690,000 for the youth program and they are expecting more this year.

So far, 25 government offices and organizations have requested workers from the program.

For information call 330-740-2600 at ext. 8605 or ext. 8777.
