COVID-19 Response Summer Jobs Program

The Governor’s Workforce Board (GWB) has federal funds available to subsidize summer jobs for youth ages 16-24. This new program, funded by the GWB and implemented by community partners selected through an online application, will allow youth to contribute to the COVID-19 recovery, serve their community, build workplace skills, and earn money.  Job opportunities must be related to the state’s efforts to respond to and recover from the COVID-19 pandemic, and selected applicant organizations will be required to manage their own recruitment, selection, supervision, and payment of youth employees, either themselves or through a partner organization. More information and the link to apply can be found at bit.ly/risummerjobs and any questions can be directed to pauline.abetti@dlt.ri.gov.
