CHERRY HILL, N.J. — The Camden County Workforce Development Board will hold an eight-week summer youth employment program that will begin on June 27 and run through August 19.

Youth, ages 16 through 24, will gain hands on work experience with employers in the science, technology, engineering, and math fields.

“The summer youth employment program offers a unique and worthwhile experience for young people in Camden County,” Commissioner Jon Young said in a press release from the county. “Not only are participants paid a $15 an hour stipend, but they are placed with top notch employers who will help them develop their workforce skills and prepare them for the working world.”

To be eligible for the program, applicants must be a Camden County resident; willing to participate in a structured professional environment; be available for the eight consecutive weeks from June to August; and attend a virtual interview and complete training.
