The City of Hinesville recognizes the importance of connecting the City’s youth with professional opportunities. This project is designed to serve as a true learning experience, with targeted lessons about how to thrive in the workforce. The project’s mission is to ensure that the youth gain valuable workforce experience aimed at cultivating their professional and personal career aspirations.
The City is looking for local businesses and organizations to serve as potential worksites for the upcoming 2021 Hinesville Summer Youth Enhancement Program (HSYEP). The program will run from June 1, 2021 – July 9, 2021 and serves to employ high school students between 14 - 18 years of age. As a traditional worksite, you have the opportunity to bolster your staff during the summer months and tackle projects you might otherwise put off, while helping a Hinesville teen gain valuable work experience.
The Hinesville Summer Youth Enhancement Program provides wages to all student participants, while providing participants with a counselor who will monitor the youth’s experience, conduct an introductory week-long career workshop, as well as provide support to the student participant and their worksite supervisor. Your organization will provide the work and we will provide the paycheck!
