Finding help for a summer youth job program is proving difficult this year in Trumbull County.
There are approximately 330 minimum wage jobs available for those who are between the ages of 15 and 24. Jobs are 30 hours a week for eight weeks this summer and include grass cutting and painting.
Officials at the Trumbull County One Stop office said the positions usually are filled up around this time, but so far only 200 people have applied and they are not sure why.
There is still time to apply during one of the next sessions Wednesday at the Trumbull One Stop office in Warren and at Liberty High School. There also is an intake session Saturday at the One Stop office as well as May 22 at Joseph Badger High School in Kinsman.
Bill Turner from the Trumbull One Stop office said the summer youth job program is a great resume builder.
“It shows that you have worked somewhere for someone else, that you have been an employee, that you have successfully retained employment, especially with younger people,” Turner said.
