T.E.E.N. Works Program Applications Available

Applications for Youth Bureau employment program can be submitted until Dec. 19


The Rockland County Youth Bureau announced applications are available for its T.E.E.N. Works (Teen Employment Education Network) program. The Youth Bureau must receive applications by Dec. 19. The county funds the workforce preparation and placement program.

This 15-week program provides youths between 14 and 21 years old experience in the workforce.  The program, which has eligibility guidelines, offers training, experiential activities and a paid job placement when successfully completed.  The goal of T.E.E.N. Works is to train young adults to become successful, contributing members of the workforce with strong goals for their future.   

Participants will receive four stipends of $125 each for a total of $500.  There may be possible job placement at the end of the 15-week program, which runs from January 28, 2013 until May 30, 2013.

Applications for T.E.E.N. Works are currently available and can be mailed, e-mailed or picked up from the Youth Bureau. The program was launched earlier this year.  Marianne McCarney-Haesche or Pete Montanez can answer questions about the program and can be reached at 845-638-516 or Montanep@co.rockland.ny.us

"The county funds the workforce preparation and placement program." Another government program our tax dollars are paying for. Whatever happened to a kid going into a local store/office and asking about a job?

that is exactly what they will have to do because these jobs have to be going to a very select few [friends of politicians and public workers family members] given the scarcity of jobs there needs to be something implemented this year that limits consecutive years to no more than 1 and a preference towards seniors in hs. under no circumstances should anyone get a job twice until there are none that have applied for at least 2 consecutive years and received no job. names should be published along with whether or not they have got a taxpayer subsidized job before'

These government jobs are just an excuse for these bureaucrats to have jobs. They will give out 10 jobs to the kids, and have 5 bureaucrats working. Another way for the politicians to give their friends jobs.
