A Paid Work Experience Program
The key purpose of the Summer Youth Employment Program is to provide Broward County's young
men and women with a summer-long adventure that is more than just a job, but a true learning
experience, with lessons about how to obtain a job, how to keep a job, and how to turn any
job into an investment of time and effort for the future. Summer Youth Employment Program
participants learn how to dress for an interview, how to conduct themselves in a professional
manner, how to value their time commitments to a job, and how to make the most of their
translatable skills from any such opportunity.

“The Summer Youth Employment program was a savior for me because it gave me the opportunity to attain
financial status to help me pay for my school needs and other necessities. It also allowed me to get a
taste of independence so that I will know what I want out of life and how to get it.!!!”

world. This program really prepared me for my future career.”

a good job.”
