Year Round Youth Employment
When funding is available, our in-school youth programming aims to provide juniors and seniors meaningful exposure to the private sector workplace. Here are two of our programs:
Promise Zone Yes! - Career Pathways for Youth - a federally-funded program for high school seniors and young adults ages 18-24 who live in the North Hartford Promise Zone. More information here.
The Hartford Student Internship Plan, is a partnership with Hartford Public Schools, Capital Workforce Partners, the City of Hartford, MetroHartford Alliance and CBIA has internship opportunities when available. For more information, contact Kelly Fitzgerald at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 860-899-3444. More information here.

Year-Round Youth Employment and Learning Programming is often funded through a combination of municipal, grant and foundation funding streams. Funding is often unpredictable and the level of funding never seems to match the level of youth need and interest.
