Every year since 2006, the Middlesex County Chamber of Commerce has placed Middletown students into constructive summer employment through the Middletown Summer Youth Employment Program. The chamber has the capacity, through its dynamic membership, to place program participants into summer employment in a wide variety of professional fields. Program host sites come from the public sector, the non-profit sector, and most notably, the private sector. The program is designed to provide employment opportunities for economically disadvantaged youth between the ages of 14 to 21.
Chamber President Larry McHugh noted, “This program teaches our young people not only the fundamentals of employment, such as getting to work on time and ready to contribute, but also the pride that comes with putting in a solid work week and receiving a paycheck that was earned through hard and honest work. We are proud of this important local workforce development program, and look forward to another successful year.”
