The 2018 DeKalb Works Summer Youth Employment Program still has 150 openings for out-of-school youth.
WorkSource DeKalb is having difficulty finding eligible candidates for these needs-based positions. Interested candidates must be DeKalb County residents between the ages of 16-24, not attending any school and who meet certain other conditions.
The eight-week program runs June 4 through July 27. Interns will be paid $9 per hour.
The positions are part of the second annual DeKalb Works program sponsored by DeKalb County CEO Michael Thurmond and the Board of Commissioners in conjunction with WorkSource DeKalb.
The program will provide 400 jobs for youth this summer. Half of the jobs are funded by DeKalb County and the other half is funded by the federal Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA). Seventy-five percent of the WIOA jobs, or 150 positions, are earmarked for out-of-school youths who meet certain criteria.
To apply, visit www.worksourcedekalb.org. Applications are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. The deadline to register is May 21.
