Newark Receives Help for Summer Employment

Newark, New Jersey’s largest city, has invested a great deal in revitalizing its appeal to businesses in order to provide more employment opportunities to those seeking work and welcoming new companies to the city. As the summer season approaches, Kevin Seawright of the Newark Economic Development Corporation is taking part in this initiative by partnering with NewarkWorks to help young people find work at the end of the 2015-2016 school year.

The Summer Youth Employment Plan is the initiative that is looking to pair these young people with paid work for a period of six weeks. Students will be interested in this initiative as statistics show a high correlation of college success for students who have had prior employment experience. On top on the opportunity to earn money and have a degree of social preparedness for college life, students will also receive educational training in financial literacy and management along with seminars on personal empowerment, which is being aided by key Newark figures and installations like Santander Bank and TD Bank.

Seawright has been vocal in his support for such partnerships that aim to export crucial education to students who are taking the early steps into independence and adulthood. Many of these students will be employed for the first time in their lives, and Seawright believes that being educated on how to manage their money will be crucial to managing life in college and later on in life.

By streamlining the process, Seawright hopes to best 2015’s number of applicants (3,000) by at least 500.
