Governor’s Workforce Board partners with local employers for the COVID-19 Response Summer Jobs Program

The Governor’s Workforce Board (GWB) has granted federal funds to 32 employers to subsidize summer jobs for youth ages 16-24. The COVID-19 Response Summer Jobs Program, funded by the GWB and implemented by employers selected through an online application, allows youth to contribute to the COVID-19 recovery, serve their community, build workplace skills, and earn money. Job opportunities are related to the state’s efforts to respond to and recover from the COVID-19 pandemic, and employers manage their own recruitment, selection, supervision, and payment of youth employees.

Interested youth looking for jobs can contact the employers listed here (NOTE: Available positions may have already been filled). General questions can be directed to pauline.abetti@dlt.ri.gov.
