The Delaware State Summer Youth Program provides summer employment experiences for youth ages 14 – 20. All projects employing youth are designed for a four to ten week period between June and September. All employment experiences provide youth a meaningful and productive work experience while gaining exposure to the working world and its requirements. Please Note: The Department of Labor does not run the Summer Youth Program. Summer Youth Providers in your area are responsible for recruitment and the application process.
