The economy is great for job seekers, including young people seeking summer jobs, part-time employment, or full-time work. Connecticut invests between $13-$15 million dollars annually to connect young people with employment programs and activities.

The Connecticut Youth Employment program runs year-round and is implemented by the state’s five Workforce Development Boards to increase youth leadership, improve job readiness, and strengthen economic stability. The program connects young people ages 14 - 24 with meaningful jobs that help them build professional networks, gain valuable work experience, and improve their resumes.
