"The goal of the Summer Youth Employment Program is to get young adults employed and helping the economy right away," said Spears, a Vocations manager. "This helps young adults get them involved in the work world or at least aware of other services we have available."

Employers are also sought who have part-time, temporary work to be done. Employers can be non-profit or public agencies. Some for-profit companies are included if they meet guidelines.

"We don't want it to appear that these jobs would prohibit someone else getting a job," Spears said. "The ideal situation would be a company needs extra staff for a specific task."
