Young adults between the ages of 16 and 21 are eligible to participate in the Summer Job Hunt. Economic circumstances are not a consideration for program registrants. Proof of age and citizenship are required. This is a free referral service to young adults and employers. Other employment and educational opportunities may be available for qualified youth.

Young adults interested in employment can go to any of the Workforce Center offices located throughout the State. These offices are a place where young people can meet with an employment specialist, who will assist them with job search activities and referrals.
