For youth 14-17
LEXINGTON, Ky. (Feb. 28, 2017) — The deadline for Lexington youth to sign-up for this year’s Summer Youth Job Training Program has been extended until March 15.
The program is a public-private partnership that provides real-world job experience to students ages 14–17 by pairing them up to work for local employers. The Lexington-Fayette Urban County Government compensates the youth worker trainees, while employers help the students develop quality job skills and workforce experience.
The program runs from June 12 to July 21. Youth worker trainees will work part-time (20 hours a week) during this period and will earn $8.20 per hour (paid by LFUCG). Participating employers are not responsible for compensation.
