BHCA Summer Youth Employment Program

This seasonal program offers a five-week, in-school employment and training program for students, ages 14 to 24, who earn money for their participation.

In 2020 we served approximately 400 youth from Hartford County. Using life-changing experiences, we provide opportunities for youth participants to increase competencies in the areas of: job readiness, customer service, basic skills, interpersonal communication, computer literacy, personal qualities, problem-solving and decision making, and financial literacy.

This is accomplished through meaningful work experiences, learning projects, and classroom training. The earnings from these programs are a constructive way to teach the value of study and work. SYELP is funded through grant funds through Capital Workforce Partners.
