Summer jobs available for area youth; employers needed

Posted: Updated:

MEDIA RELEASE:

Busing tables, cleaning classrooms, or answering phones at the local Department of Job and Family Services may not sound like the best way to spend a summer, but it would go a long way toward getting new clothes for the new school year, or just for spending money to do fun things during the summer.

WSOS Community Action Commission is offering youth 16-24 years old who live in Hancock and Wood Counties such an opportunity.

The summer employment program for these youth will operate from May 15 to August 31. To be able to participate the youth and/or his/her family must earn no more than 200 percent of the federal poverty guideline. This means that a family of four must earn no more than $47,100 per year. The income is adjusted based on the number of people in the family.

The program is simply to provide employment training for youth in the age range, and it is made possible by DJFS of Hancock and Wood Counties and operated by WSOS.

This program depends on partnerships with local employers for its success. Local employers who participate in the program assist participants to build the skills required to secure and maintain a job. WSOS will pay the wages of the hired youth for the summer.

Employers are always being recruited for the program. Interested employers should contact the WSOS Family Advocate at 419-429-8045 in Findlay or 419-353-7407 in Bowling Green.
