Schools are closed and the Governor has ordered us to stay at home. So much feels unpredictable and unknowable.
But one thing that I do know and want to share with you, is that Partner4Work is committed to providing job opportunities for young people ages 14-21 this summer and applications are now being accepted for Learn & Earn 2020.
So even though you might not be able to plan for a lot at the moment, you can plan for that!
What is Learn & Earn?
This Summer Youth Employment Program is a community-wide effort to empower young adults in Allegheny County and the City of Pittsburgh to gain the skills and experience necessary to become successful members of our region’s workforce.
Learn & Earn is designed to provide meaningful work experience and career exposure to low-income young adults, ages 14-21, residing in Allegheny County and the City of Pittsburgh. The program seeks to:
- Create a positive and safe work experience for youth
- Increase youth exposure to potential careers, occupations, and critical occupational skills
- Increase youth’s soft skills through work-readiness training tailored to their development stages and learning goals
