If you’re looking to hire a great worker and change a young person’s life―Youth@Work can help. Youth@Work is an organization that is committed to matching young people with opportunities at local businesses. Getting involved in this community-wide program can be done in one of three ways: hire a young person on your own; host a Youth@Work intern for the summer; or sponsor a Youth@Work internship. The cost for a summer intern is just $1,950 and Youth@Work will do all of the screening to find candidates who match your needs.
Youth@Work is an important program because it provides young people with work experience, at a time when it’s most critical. Youth@Work is designed to set young people up for success in school, employment and life. Become a part of the solution to getting our youth off the streets and into a constructive work environment, and add capacity to your business in a cost- effective way.
Youth@Work is an initiative of the Workforce Development Council (WDC) of Seattle-King County in partnership with local employers.
