Free help for businesses this summer from LB youth
2009-06-15 · By Editor
Thanks to Recovery Act 2009 funding, more than 1,200 youth in the Long Beach, Torrance, Lomita, and Signal Hill area are ready to go to work this summer. They could be working for you — at no cost.
Young adults, ages 14 – 24, are ready to work 20-25 hours a week in July and August for up to 200 hours — at no cost to the worksite. If you are ready to invest a few hours in training youth to complete your projects, you’ll get hundreds of hours of no-cost assistance.
The Pacific Gateway Workforce Investment Network will provide wages, worker’s compensation insurance, a job coach and all required administrative procedures.
If you would like to take advantage of this temporary no-cost workforce solution, please complete a worksite application form at www.pacificgatewayworkforce.com or call one of the following numbers: 562.570.4735, 562.570.4733, or, toll free, 866.631.9400.
If you are a non-profit, government, or private sector business, and can provide a meaningful work experience in an established work environment, mentoring and all necessary work equipment and tools, this is an opportunity you won’t want to miss.
The Summer Youth Employment Training Program is administered by the Pacific Gateway Workforce Investment Network’s Youth Opportunity Center.
