Youth Employment Gearing Up For Summer

Each summer, Chautauqua Works connects Chautauqua County youth ages 14-20 with career exploration, workshops on job readiness, financial literacy, skills training opportunities and entry-level jobs in a variety of industries, including government agencies, hospitals, summer camps, non-profits, small businesses, museums and retail organizations. Amid the uncertainty related to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, this year’s program may look different from the traditional program in prior years.
