Young adults between the ages of 16 and 24 are eligible to be apart of the COVID-19 Summer Youth Employment Program.
Jobs will be at places including sportscore facilities, Nicholas Conservatory, and UW Health Sports Factory.

“Helping them build a resume if they need help with that. Getting their business background, just coming in on time, work ethic, communicating to managers, other employees, being a team member,” explained Joe Meersman, the youth sports athletic coordinator for Rockford Park District.
