Our new Hamilton County Youth Employment Program provides jobs and year-round job readiness training for Hamilton County residents ages 14-21. We want to help young people in Hamilton County find work, explore careers and remove barriers to create a clear path to more education or a career.

To be eligible, young people must have a household income at 200 percent of the federal poverty level and/or have an eligible barrier to employment. When participants complete the program, they will have a written training plan to help them continue on the path toward their chosen career.

We’re investing $5 million in the Hamilton County Youth Employment Program. We’re able to do that thanks to voters who supported our Children’s Services levy. Boosting employment services and giving more help to older teens were two of the things we promised to do with levy dollars, so we are making good on those promises.

Benefits: 
  • Earn $13 per hour
  • Earn incentives/bonuses
  • Get help creating a resume
  • Earn micro-credentials that will boost your resume
  • Transportation and ID assistance
  • Training opportunities to prepare for careers
Jobs may include:
  • Customer Service
  • Automotive
  • Construction
  • Urban Farming
  • The Arts
  • Technology
  • Government Administration
  • Hospitality
  • Landscaping
  • Healthcare
