Summer Youth Training Program 2020  Cancelled due to Covid-19

Due to the recent rise of the COVID-19 pandemic Leon County  in partnership with CareerSource Capital Region has adjusted the 2020 Summer Youth Program dates to July 6 - August 7, 2020. In addition we are extending the application deadline to Friday, April 24 at 5 p.m. (EST). Leon County recognizes the return to normalcy that this program brings to our community and is adjusting safely to still provide this experience. 

At this time it is our hope that by rescheduling the program dates from Monday, June 8 - Friday, July 10 to the new July start date we will be able to continue to provide this opportunity to youth in our community. The Summer Youth Training Program (SYTP) is designed to prepare young adults for the world of work. This five-week program allows youth to earn $8.56 per hour during the summer while learning new skills.


Applications will be accepted from March 2 at 8:00 am to April 24 at 5:00 pm (EST).

This program provides youth with an opportunity to earn money while gaining valuable work experience, skills-oriented training and career exposure. Summer youth applicants are able to choose from a variety of Leon County Divisions which include the Leon County Community and Media Relations, Library Services, Volunteer Services,  Development Support & Environmental Management, and several others.

  • Clerical duties (filings, typing, copying, enter data, answering phones).
  • Assisting in managing ball fields 
  • Cataloging and shelving books
  • Research using historical records

Young adults who are accepted into the program will also participate in CareerSource Capital Region’s Dynamic Futures training in which they will create a portfolio and learn important soft skills.
