StL Youth Jobs is accepting applications from Ferguson or Dellwood youth (aged 16-23) for a youth employment program. Youth will receive job training, financial literacy training, and extensive job coaching from MERS Goodwill staff throughout the program. Youth will work roughly 20-28 hours per week depending on age and availability across 6 months.
Employers are also needed that would provide quality supervision, work experience, and mentorship throughout their six months. The youth wages are completely paid by the generous grant from Emerson, so there are no out of pocket costs to the organizations.
