The Governor’s Summer Job Hunt has connected young people ages 16 to 21 with work experience since 1981. Generations of Colorado workers– more than half a million– got their start through the program with employers who were willing to give young people a chance.
These youth-friendly employers are at the heart of the Governor’s Summer Job Hunt. Without them, there would be no summer jobs, no exposure to the world of work, no access to career track employment opportunities.
Young adults between the ages of 16 and 21 are eligible to participate in the Summer Job Hunt. Economic circumstances are not a consideration for program registrants. Proof of age and citizenship are required. This is a free referral service to young adults and employers. Other employment and educational opportunities may be available for qualified youth.
Young adults interested in employment can go to any of the Workforce Center offices located throughout the State. These offices are a place where young people can meet with an employment specialist, who will assist them with job search activities and referrals.
