Summer Youth Employment Program 2019

The Rensselaer County Summer Youth Employment Program provides income-eligible youth ages 14-20 with a unique opportunity to gain meaningful job skills during the summer months through employment.

Applications are now being accepted for the 2019 Summer Youth Employment Program.  Please note that the application deadline is May 24th.

Unlike in years past, youth will not be placed based on a first come first served basis. Those who completed the entire application and submitted by the due date are eligible to competitively interview for a position this summer. At the interview be prepared to discuss what kind of work you would like to do this summer, the transportation you will have to and from work, why you are the best candidate for a job, and whether or not you will be attending summer school.  Please read and follow instructions on the application for further information.
