Berkshire County Employers – We Need Your Help!
Please help support our youth, grow our economy and enhance the region’s workforce!
- Sponsor a youth. It takes just $2,000 to provide a young person with a six week work experience that will greatly impact their future career pursuits, personal aspirations and lifetime self sufficiency.
- Serve as a corporate sponsor. The financial support of the Berkshire business community is essential to our youth program expansion and sustainability!
- Participate as a host employer. The Youth Works program provides low-income youth with summer & year-round work opportunities and work-readiness training. Since 2015, nineteen North Adams youth were provided with enriching summer jobs throughout eleven Northern Berkshire Businesses!
- Hire a youth. By hiring a youth ages 14-21, you are serving to shape a young person’s foundational and job specific skill base, encourage their future career endeavors and help the region qualify for additional state and federal dollars to serve our youth in subsidized employment programs.
