The Franklin County 2020 Summer Employment Program Project SEEK (Summer Employment Experience for Kids) will operate from Aug. 3 through 29 and will serve 16 through 20 year old youth who will work approximately 28 to 35 hours per week and receive $11.80 an hour.
The program is designed to provide young people with a meaningful work experience, and participants can expect to acquire job skills, work experience, career exploration information, employment references, job readiness skills and work-keeping skills. Youth will be matched to worksites by considering both the participant’s and the worksite’s needs and requirements.
Applicants will be evaluated on a competitive, rather than first-come-first-serve, basis and will be assessed through the interview process. This approach has been chosen to help ensure we will be employing young people who are dedicated, qualified, and eager to participate in the program. Income guidelines apply.
Applications are available on the front porch at Catholic Charities, 6 Cedar St., Malone from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. Applications can also be e-mailed.
After completing the application with required parent/guardian signatures, youth need to schedule an interview by calling Catholic Charities at 518-483-1460, Monday through Friday 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Due to late notification of funding, the application/interview process will be quick, with a very short turn-around time. Interview dates and times will be limited.
Interviews will begin immediately and be completed when all available position are filled. Positions will fill quickly, apply today.
