Outdoor Summer Jobs Open for 16- to 24-Year-Olds

The Sonoma County Youth Ecology Corps (SCYEC) is taking applications through May 22 for its eight-week, summer job program for 16- to 24-year-olds.

Forty youth will be hired to work from June 17-August 8 on environmental and land conservation projects at parks and other outdoor locations throughout the county. Pay is $13.80 per hour. Youth will also receive career and environmental education and job training, plus enjoy fun events with other workers. As one crew member said, “It’s a great gateway into getting a job and succeeding in life.”

Beware: Scams to Steal EBT benefits

Sonoma County and the state NEVER text, call or post social media messages asking for your personal information or EBT card PIN. If you’ve received a text, phone call or social media request asking for confidential information, contact Employment and Training right away. We can help if your benefits are stolen, though they cannot be replaced.

Remember, keep your benefits safe and DO NOT give out your social security number, EBT card number or PIN to anyone.
