JOB APPLICATION FOR T.E.E.N. WORKS GRADUATES

Applications are now available for T.E.E.N.Works Graduates! Upon graduation from the T.E.E.N. Works program, participants may be placed in paid employment at a local business, not-for-profit, or municipality throughout Rockland County.

Since 1994 the Youth Bureau has administered the Rockland County Youth Employment Program (YEP). This youth workforce preparation initiative provides employment training and job placement for eligible young people between the ages of 15 and 20. The YEP provides the opportunity for the development of skilled, trained and prepared young people for our local workforce. In 2018, the program placed over 200 young people with employers throughout the County. When given the opportunity, the young people are rising to the occasion and contributing to our County in a meaningful and productive way. The YEP builds partnership with local private businesses, not-for-profits, and municipal agencies to promote youth workforce development within the county, as well as providing for a labor cost saving for all participating employers.

The YEP, funded by Rockland County and the Department of Social Services through the Federal Summer Youth Employment Program funding, consists of two components:

T.E.E.N. Works (Teen Employment Education Network) - A 4-week program that provides workforce preparation training and experiential activities for teens and young adults between the ages of 15 and 20.

Job Placement and Subsidized Employment - Upon successful completion and graduation from the program participants may be placed in paid employment at a local business, not-for-profit, or municipality.
