    Youth Job Connection Summer is YJC’s summer component. It helps youth aged 15 to 18 who face multiple or complex barriers to employment by providing summer, part-time, and after-school job opportunities.

    These services are designed to help young people build their skills and gain the experience they need to succeed in the workforce.

    Consider an Apprenticeship

    An apprenticeship program combines on-the-job and in-school training for employment in a skilled trade. It enables workers to get the workplace and classroom training they need to become certified in their chosen trade.

    An apprenticeship is a pathway to a rewarding career in the trades. As an apprentice, you’ll take classes and learn your trade by working under the guidance  of experienced workers – and get paid while you do it.
