High school students in Hampton can apply now for the 10-week summer program

city hall

Feb. 13, 2017 - High school students in Hampton looking for a job this summer have until March 8, 2017,  to apply online for the city's 10-week Summer Youth Employment Program. Organized by the city's Youth Violence Prevention Office, the program introduces high school students to employment opportunities within local government and at local businesses. Lack of employment, particularly among youth, is detrimental to their lifelong earning potential. Research shows that early connection to the labor market improves lifelong connection to work and increases earnings. Student participants receive pre-employment and in service training, and attend workforce development workshops. The program is open to students 16 years of age (on or before June 1, 2017) and older who attend one of the four high schools, or one of the alternative learning programs offered by Hampton City Schools. Interviews will begin at each high school campus shortly after the application period ends. Employment offers will be made the week of March 27.
