WLG provides youth, ages 16-21, with the opportunity to participate in employment services and earn wages for a longer period of time.
The program gives youth the opportunity to gain the skills, attitudes, and habits that will help them be successful in their adult careers as well as begin to develop the personal and professional networks that can connect them to jobs. Services include participant assessment, college exploration, career exploration and job shadowing. Work-readiness activities including financial literacy, resume and cover-letter writing, interviewing skills, conflict resolution and workplace behavior are also included in the program.
If you are an active participant in the 2019 Summer Youth Employment Program and would like further information, please call 718-462-4244.
