Shannon Youth Employment Program 2021

The SHANNON Youth Employment Program, funded by the Charles Shannon Community Safety Initiative, was created to help youth gain the skills and experience needed to find and keep jobs. Participants will work at paid short-term work placements during the summer and fall at public, private, and nonprofit work sites. This program is open to youth who live in both Chicopee and Holyoke only.

If you are interested in participating, please fill out the application provided in the link below. All information obtained is confidential and will only be used to seek prospective participants for our annual summer employment program.


(This is NOT a promise of employment. Follow-up will be needed to further the application process)
