Business Partners Sought for Denver Summer Youth Employment Programs

With the summer job season for youth just around the corner, the Denver Office of Economic Development (OED) is actively seeking business employer partners. 

 

“The City has a strong history of connecting businesses with trained and pre-screened youth workers for the summer employment season and beyond,” said Ledy Garcia-Eckstein, acting director of Workforce Development for the OED. “Our programs provide a way for businesses to help ensure a strong workforce pipeline for Denver’s future. Plus, many of our youth hires are so impressive that they continue on with employers well beyond a seasonal job placement.”

 

OED invites businesses with part-time and full-time job opportunities to participate in its summer youth employment programs. Youth age 14 to 21 participate in the program, with job placements beginning later this month.

 

For more information, contact OED’s division of Workforce Development, Youth Services at 720-865-5700 or youthservices@denvergov.org.
