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.
