New Rochelle Youth Recognized for Summer Employment

The New Rochelle Youth Bureau hosted their annual Youth Employment Recognition Ceremony on Wednesday, August 8, 2018 in the Council Chambers at City Hall. Sixty-eight youth residents ages 14-21 were recognized and presented with certificates for their summer employment. The Youth Bureau provided summer jobs in three programs: Network Youth Leadership Program, TANF Summer Employment Program, and Potential Candidates Summer Intern Program. With an additional forty-three youth employed with the City School District, the total youth served this summer numbers one hundred eleven. 
"It’s our responsibility as leaders in our communities to create a path forward for the next generation," said Youth Bureau’s Executive Director, Kelly Johnson. “Thanks to our worksite and funding partners, we were able to offer this experience to a good number of our young people.”

Summer employees were placed at various worksites throughout the City including City Hall (Assessor’s Office, Bureau of Buildings, Finance Department and Parks & Recreation Department) City Court, Garito Manor at Union Square, Hour to Exit, Little Beehive, Monroe College, New Rochelle Chamber of Commerce, New Rochelle Public Library, NRBA-Summer Basketball League, Preschool Learning Center, Willow Towers Assisted Living and Youth Bureau – Middle School Drop In Programs. In addition to regular work hours, the youth participated in mentoring, resume-building and job-training activities.

The tremendous success of this year’s programs was made possible through funding from City of New Rochelle and Westchester County. It was also supported in part by NYS Office of Children and Family Services, Westchester Putnam Workforce Investment Board, New Rochelle Department of Development’s CDBG program, Youth Bureau Board of Commissioners and the Office of the City Manager.
