Summer Youth Employment Program 

A partnership between HCJFS, the Cincinnati-Hamilton County Community Action Agency (CAA) and the Day Group will result in employment for several hundred teens this summer.

Youth between the ages of 16 and 24 from underprivileged households gain work experience and job preparation while employers gain access to summer labor. Youth may be eligible when their household is at or below 200 percent of the federal poverty guideline.

Youth can apply at the CAA or the Day Group to see if they are eligible. Those organizations will find placements for eligible teens and HCJFS pays their salaries through Workforce Investement Act funding.

In the past, participants have been placed at Cincinnati Recreation Center, local parks, ArtWorks and some retail jobs in the community. Youth are paid up to $10 an hour and transportation may be available.

The program has existed for many years and is expected to serve a record number of kids in 2013.

To inquire about the CAA program, please contact Jaquetta Brown at (513) 569-1840 ext. 2418.

The Day Group is also accepting applications for the Summer Youth Program, for information, please call Amber Twitty at (513) 800-0126 or (513) 800-0142.
