Applications are being accepted for summer positions available to Pinellas County youths ages 14-25 through four programs administered by Career Options of Pinellas County Inc.
Eligibility for the Summer Youth Intern program in St. Petersburg, the Summer Employment program in Clearwater and the Youth Employment for the Summer program which is countywide, is based upon family income. There are no eligibility requirements for the Jobshop program.
The Y.E.S program serves younger participants in a paid training setting while the other programs place youth in the private sector with an emphasis on job preparedness, mentoring and personal responsibility. References are provided for anyone successfully completing the programs.
Most jobs begin in June and last for six weeks while some begin earlier and continue after the summer.
