Youth Job Connection (YJC) Summer Program
Additionally, our YJC Summer Program will provide summer job opportunities and part-time job placements during the school year to help multi-barriered high school students, aged 15 to 18, make positive educational and career choices. The focus will be on those facing challenging life circumstances and are at-risk of experiencing poor transitions between education and work.
