2017 YOUTHWORKS SUMMER PROGRAM

The primary goal of Merrimack Valley’s 2017 YouthWorks (MVYW) is good subsidized summer employment for at least 229 eligible area youth between the ages of 14-21.

Most jobs will be at private for-profit, public municipal, and non-profit community based organizations in Lawrence, Haverhill or Methuen. Although a few summer jobs may occur throughout the region. Privately funded jobs.

Our second priority is to enhance enrolled young people’s job-related skills. Enhanced job readiness training workshops and on-going job coaching by employers and program staff will help youth build critical job skills. Our goal is to help prepare youth to find and keep unsubsidized jobs in the future.

The third program goal is to reinforce the connection between academic achievement and a successful future. All participants will be encouraged to attain their high school diplomas or to take the High School Equivalency Exam and pursue secondary education or training as well as unsubsidized jobs.


For more information about the program or if you would like to host a youth, please contact Cristy C. Gomez at 978-857-5220 or email her at ccgomez@mvwib.org.
