The Larimer County Workforce Center is currently offering two summer programs geared towards preparing Larimer County youth for the world of employment and future careers!
The Summer Youth Employment Program is looking for youth candidates, ages 16-18, to be considered by local businesses for part-time employment opportunities. Youth candidates who participate will complete the Larimer County Workforce Center job readiness workshops and a final employment consultation with an Employment Specialist. The workshop curriculum provides necessary tools to begin and continue successfully in the workplace while the one-on-one employment consultation will review the candidate’s job search portfolio and identify specific positions of interest.
Interested youth should complete the application for the Summer Youth Employment Program, found on the Larimer County Workforce Center website at www.larimerworkforce.org/syep
Through Career Road Trips, youth ages 14-21will tour behind the scenes of local businesses and interact with professionals in emerging industries. All tours are free and transportation is provided! Participants will leave with an understanding of the following:
- Local employers and their future hiring needs
- Skills & education to be successful
- The day-to-day work duties in up & coming careers
- Employer expectations of the next generation workforce
Career Road Trips are offered once per week and begin the first week in June and run through July. Interested youth need to reserve their seat by signing up soon at www.larimerworkforce.org/crt
