Hello Community and Education Partners!

Summer Works logo

Greetings! My name is Natalie Reteneller, the new Operations Manager for SummerWorks. It is my life's passion to support young people and the adults around them.  We have a great team ready to support you this year and Reggie Smith and I are excited and honored to be working with such amazing partners as we prepare and place youth into meaningful summer jobs! 

3 Actions You Can Take NOW To Support Young People

1)  Register Them for 2018 SummerWorks

Encourage youth and young adults (age 16 to 21 years as of June 1, 2018) to register for the 2018 SummerWorks program  here:

Reggie and I are your partners in making this happen.  Call or e-mail us (contact info below) to make arrangements for us to attend an event to orient and register youth for this important  program!

2)  Hire a Young Person

Are you a nonprofit or  public employer  that wants to employ  youth over the summer?   Based on  available  funding we will  provide wages and on-the-job coaching for youth during this  seven week program.  Please contact Natalie to receive more information or to update your job descriptions from last summer.

3) Host a Soft Skills Workshop at your site

SummerWorks is partnering with different industry groups this year to bring work readiness workshops and job search services into the community. If you are interested in hosting a workshop or scheduling a speaker ,please email Natalie for more information.

We look forward to partnering with you and making 2018 even better!
