5/2/2018 - Chair Pro-Tem Lynne Hubbard invites you to participate in the Summer Youth Employment Initiatives

You Are Invited to Partner with Us!

Riviera Beach…. A City on the Rise! 

 The Mayor, City Councilmembers and the entire city of Riviera Beach are committed to the advancement of our youth. 

As a person who has participated in the  different Summer Youth Employment Initiatives of Palm Beach CountyI will attest to the fact that it is one of the most valuable resources we can afford our families.

We invite you to partner with us to continue the momentum; as a stakeholder and a business in our community we know that it is equally important to you that our youth, who are our most valuable resource; yet our most vulnerable resource, stay engaged in meaningful and productive activities.  

As you are aware summer is fast approaching and school will be out soon. 

We are asking you to become a Partner with the City of Riviera Beach and hire at least one youth, it will be a worthwhile financial investment.  Employing a youth this summer in your business, would not only ensure that our youth are gainfully employed but it will provide them a meaningful opportunity for career exploration.  

All participants will engage in a comprehensive employability skills training and be assigned an advocate that will work with you and them throughout the summer to make sure this partnership is a success.  This program is projected to run for 8 weeks and you could be eligible for a Work Opportunity Tax Credit. 

On behalf of the Mayor and the City Council, we thank you for your consideration.

We Are Stronger Together!
