When you hire a young person (ages 14-24), you are in a position to change the trajectory of their life, ignite their creativity, and mentor and shape their future, while providing them with a meaningful work experience. With summer job opportunities, participants are more engaged, more connected to the community, and more likely to complete school.

You may find the talent your organization was missing. Help your organization, while helping the County's talented youth gain employment this summer.

Sponsorship Opportunity

If you do not currently have positions open but wish to support youth employment, we invite you to become one of our Sponsorship Partners. As a Sponsorship Partner, your organization will be recognized on Youth@Work/SYEP marketing materials and social media. Your organization will receive our communications and invitations to our special events.

Your financial contribution will assist County youth and young adults with access to summer employment opportunities. Your contribution may assist with:

  • Transportation subsidy
  • Technology access to close the digital divide
  • Work opportunities for additional youth
