New Castle County Summer Youth Employment Program

The New Castle County Summer Youth Employment Program is designed to engage low income New Castle County residents ages 14-20 in meaningful paid work-based learning that helps them launch their careers. The program runs annually from June - August. Youth are exposed (many for the first time) to the world of work that enables them to learn about the variety of occupations available, in and around New Castle County, while getting paid for their time.
