THE BRONX - Young people looking for a summer job may be able to find one through a program run by the Department of Youth and Community Development.
The Summer Youth Employment Program plans on placing 34,000 jobs in the hands of young people aged 14-24. The jobs available include working with the New York City Parks Department, at day care centers, day camps, local hospitals, offices, non-profit agencies and more.
The deadline for registration has been extended until Wednesday, May 22.
Last year, 130,000 applications were submitted. Only 29,000 were hired.
Once an applicant is selected, they will attend a job fair where they can choose which job they want to pursue. The first day of work will begin July 8 and end in August.
