At Risk Youth Employment Programs

Programs that provide comprehensive support services for specific populations of at-risk youth such as young offenders, homeless youth, youth living in high-poverty areas and foster youth who need assistance preparing for, finding and retaining paid employment. Services may include vocational assessment; guidance relating to resume preparation, job application letters and questionnaires, interview techniques, appropriate dress and personal-social behaviors that will allow them to get along with employers and co-workers on the job; job skills development support; job placement assistance; limited periods of subsidized employment, where necessary; and/or on-the-job support, as required, to help the individual retain his or her position.

General Youth Employment Programs

Programs broadly available to youth in general (rather than focusing on special groups within the youth population) that provide vocational assessment, job development, job training, job placement, specialized job situations and/or other supportive services that help young people prepare for, find and retain paid employment.

Summer Youth Employment Programs

A government-subsidized program that provides employment opportunities in the public and private sector during the summer months for youth age 14 through 21 whose family income does not exceed the federal poverty income guidelines. To be eligible, the youth must have a Social Security card, a legal right to work in the United States, and, if younger than age 17, a work permit. The youth must also register during the application period which takes place in the spring.
