Summer jobs, free transport for teenagers at PSS

A limited number of positions will be available in the Summer Youth Employment Program that will be offered to the Self-Sufficiency Project in July and August. Eligible Sussex County teens, ages 15-17, will receive free employability skills training at The Self-Sufficiency Project and participate in paid on-the-job training. The summer youth employment program will take place Monday through Thursday July 12 to August 12. Eligibility criteria include family income, transportation status, current high school enrollment, Covid vaccine vaccination, and other factors. Free transport to and from project self-sufficiency will be provided to participants; use of the transportation program, interviews and referrals from high school staff members are required. Those who have previously participated in the Youth Summer Jobs Program are not eligible. Space is limited; applications must be received by June 18.

The Youth Summer Employment Program offers teens a wide variety of work experiences, ranging from office tasks to helping with landscaping projects. Teens also receive daily classroom instruction on workplace etiquette, interview skills and other topics at Project Self-Sufficiency’s state-of-the-art career center.

The program has a measurable impact on the adolescents it serves. “For many of these young people, the Youth Summer Employment Program is their first experience in the workplace,” comments Deborah Berry-Toon, Executive Director of Project Self-Sufficiency. “The program gives them guidance on workplace expectations as well as basic job skills, and gives every teen the opportunity to explore their interests and abilities. The program gives them a foothold in the world of work and can serve as a stepping stone to their future careers.
