Millhill Child & Family Development Receives Grant
The Trenton Summer Youth Employment Program is a partnership between the Trenton Mayor's Office, Millhill Child & Family Development, MIDJersey Chamber of Commerce, Rider University and the Trenton Area Stakeholders.
The initiative provides Trenton teens with the opportunity to earn money, establish positive work history, as well as obtain the necessary competencies to do so successfully.
The job readiness training is designed to build soft skills and is free to participants. Upon completion of the two-day training, participants become eligible for job consulting and summer job placement services. The Summer Employment Program launched during the summer of 2016 with 85 Trenton youths employed from July through August and the program is on track this summer to employ 100 teens.
