Youth Summer Employment Program Available at
Carroll County Department of Job and Family Services
The Carroll County Department of Job and Family Services has received funds from the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services for a summer employment program for TANF eligible youth.
The 2014 TANF Summer Youth Employment Program will run from May through October 31, 2014. To qualify for the program, a youth must be 14 to 24 years old, with a minor child in their household, and have a family income of 200% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines. Non-custodial parents who meet the age requirement and pay child support could also qualify.
Eligible youth will participate in employment readiness training as a part of this year’s program, and will register on the State’s OhioMeansJobs website. Youth will be matched with participating employers and will work for those employers for the summer.
Staff hope to recruit a wide variety of businesses to participate in this year’s program. In past years, youth have worked in some of the following fields – clerical, automotive, hospitality, bee keeping, recycling, retail, landscaping, child care, nurses’ aide, camps, and general labor.
Interested youth should contact OhioMeansJobs Carroll County Jobs Center (55 East Main Street, rear, Carrollton) or call 330-627-3804. Staff will need the following information from those who apply to the program: name, physical address, email address, phone number, and date of birth.
Interested employers should contact Bill Offenberger at 330-627-3804.
