White Plains Businesses -- Sign Up for
Summer Youth Employment Program
Remember your first summer job? Most adults do! When asked, they will smile fondly recalling the lessons and skills they learned, remarking that the experience paved the way for future opportunities. The White Plains Youth Bureau Youth Employment Services does just that.
Every year YES provides young people, who are White Plains residents 14-21
years of age,
the opportunity to experience, learn, grow, and make some money t
hrough their summer jobs program. For six weeks, young people work in camps, city departments, local businesses and not-for-profits learning the "soft skills" that so many employers state employees are lacking today.
Youth Employment Services prepares participating youth for the workforce through resume writing and interviewing workshops and hosts Job Fair, held at the Crowne Plaza Hotel. YES's goal is to place every young adult eager for an opportunity. With the support of the local business community, this gioal can be achieved.
If you are a local business owner or corportaion, you can help by providing a paid employment opportunity or by sponsoring a job placement for $1,800. To learn more about YES and provide a summer employment experience for a young person, please contact Youth Bureau director Frank Williams at 914-422-1378.
