“Developing Tomorrow’s Workforce Today”

The 2010 Summer Youth Employment and Learning Program provided youth opportunities for job readiness, leadership and decision making.  The program was funded by the State of Connecticut - Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) with leveraged funds from select municipalities and foundations.  Learn more about youth programs.

 

  • Summer 2010: Focus and intensity at the "Hot Spot Bike Shop"
    Kwante Feliciano is installing and adjusting gears on used bikes donated to the program and later sold. This unique program is an actual small business run by youth employment program participants placed at the Urban League of Greater Hartford at 140 Woodland Street, Hartford.
  • Summer 2010: Tuning it up at the "Hot Spot Bike Shop"
    These youth are in on the "A-Z" of running the small business. Their team work here is producing another bargain for those stopping by the tent in the lot at 140 Woodland Street $25 - $50 will get you a solid and safe bike.
  • Summer 2010: The Penny Saver Thrift Shop - Manchester Memorial Hospital Auxilliary
    According to George Precour, her supervisor, Veronica Vioude (right) is a great find you will discover among the gems at the Penny Saver Thrift Shop. Since she was placed under his watchful eye, Mr. Precourt speaks highly of Veronica's can-do spirit and customer-focus. Kudo's to Veronica and George for being fine additions to this year's Program. Also pictured is Nicole Fortier (left), visting from the Urban League of Greater Hartford.

  • Summer 2010: It's all-business for "Hartford Youth Speak" researchers in this Board Room
    This group was led by George Philliber, Philliber Research Associates, who was retained by The City of Hartford Office for Youth Services. These participants are codifying research categories and questions to be used by them in the field with over a 1,000 Hartford youth. The research results will inform public policy experts and social agency leaders on Hartford youths' career assets, aspirations and key concerns.
  • Summer 2010: He's cutting it thin...but "not close,"at the Stop and Shop.
    Safety counts as much as service for this participant placed at this very busy and demanding location. It's evident he's fairly well on top of it.
  • Summer 2010: Out in front
    At Stop and Shop, you are often in front of the public, busily performing rotating roles along with your youth employment program co-workers at this location.
  • Summer 2010: Do these two have to pack it up while they pack them in?
    At TJ Maxx in Manchester, the ever-busy and thoroughly-driven store manager, Christina Noyes, enthusiastically welcomed dozens of youth for the 2010 Summer Youth Employment and Learning Program -- at the same time she and her team are plunged in a store-wide re-modeling effort where the doors will stay open! Ms. Noyes reasoned the youth would get a memorable immersion in the rigors, front-to-back, of the retail trade. The youth are supporting sales and remodeling activities. Kudos to all for the extra effort!

  • Summer 2010: Omar the Unflappable - ShopRite in Manchester
    Some at ShopRite say Omar Montanez always comes to work appearing ready for the cover of GQ. We agree. Just seconds before this photo, Omar was out clearing the lot of carriages at the height of the Friday shopping rush.
  • Summer 2010: Looking sharp at the ShopRite in Manchester
    Busy on a Friday near 5:00 o'clock! This young man could only give the photographer a second. Pictured here are Yvonne Matthews, Urban League of Greater Hartford, and one of her many charges for the summer, Omar Montanez.
