The Opportunities Industrialization Center of New Britain is calling for the help of businesses and nonprofits who can provide worksites for summer youth employment.
The employment program is five weeks long and it gives the youth an opportunity to explore potential careers at different businesses or agencies, according to the center.
OIC New Britain is a nonprofit organization providing community services through federal, state and local funding sources. It is one of the city’s oldest providers of job training and career development services, offering career competencies that are the soft skills needed for the world of work to ensure successful employees.
The summer youth employment and learning program has been in the greater New Britain community for over 35 years, helping to prepare the youth for the world of work and career opportunities. The center pays the salary of the youth for the five weeks and the business or nonprofit organization provides the worksite.
