How does the program work?

The program allows youth to work at your location for up to 200 hours. Youth will be paid bi-weekly directly by our payroll staff. You will only need to provide copy of your General Liability Insurance. Youth will be covered by the program's Workers Compensation.

How can I add my business?

Please contact our Business Team at 209-724-2083 or email Michael Solis

Our Business Team will gather your job openings and job descriptions. Our team will then schedule one- on- one interviews where you can meet with youth prior to placement. This gives you and the youth the opportunity to decide if this is a good fit.
