Oneida County Emerging Worker Recovery Programs Accepting Applications
County Executive Anthony J. Picente Jr. recently unveiled Oneida County’s Emerging Worker Recovery Program that will provide expanded employment opportunities to high school and college students and help local employers bolster their diminished workforces.
First introduced in Picente’s State of the County Address earlier this year, the Emerging Worker Recovery Program includes two main streams for young Oneida County residents.
Youth Employment: To build upon the success of the Oneida County Summer Youth Employment Program, Oneida County will create a youth employment program that will provide work opportunities for 14-19 year-olds, not just in the summer, but year-round. Summer jobs will be expanded to more work sites and part-time work will be offered through the school year.
Enhanced Internships: The County created the Oneida County College Student Corps in 1998 to connect local college students with career opportunities through summer internships. This program will be expanding to support year-round internships. As with the summer program, the enhanced internship project will require employers to match county dollars as a partnership to support the development of the emerging workforce.
