Congratulations to Our Teen Works Graduates!

Seventy-five local young people recently completed a major first step toward defining positive goals for their futures when they graduated from the County’s 2014 Teen Works Program.

Introduced by the Montgomery County Recreation Department in 2012, Teen Works is a comprehensive youth development work program that aims to address the growing trend of youth who are challenged to find meaningful employment. It features an occupational component that provides opportunity for teens to develop work experiences and an education component that provides leadership training.
Teen Works is offered year round for Montgomery County high school students age 16 to graduation. Teens are placed in public-sector and non-profit jobs throughout the County. They can work up to four hours per day or eight hours on weekends during the school year, or 40 hours per week during the summer months, earning minimum wage, that is paid by the County.
The year-end ceremony for the Teen Works graduates, held at Albert Einstein High School in Kensington on July 30, was attended by Councilmembers Craig Rice and Nancy Navarro.
Hear more about the program and what it has meant to some of the graduates in a new Teen Works video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3JBhWuomXog&feature=youtu.be
