Summer jobs for 500 Lucas County youths available
The Lucas County Commissioners have announced the allocation of $1.7 million from the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services for the 2013 Temporary Aid for Needy Families Summer Youth Employment Program.

Funds will pay $8.00 per hour to more than 500 eligible youth ages 16 to 24, who will work a maximum of 40 hours per week with various public and private sector employers around the county.

The Lucas County Workforce Development Agency has identified local employers eager to provide summer work experience for youth, matching them up with entry-level jobs at local organizations to provide valuable work experience, a source of income, and skills necessary for academic and professional success.

Registration for both eligible youth and interested employers is available online at, or by calling 419-213-6340.

Registration is first-come, first-serve. Employment is scheduled to begin June 17 and continue through mid-August.
