Applications being accepted from local employers for Workforce Solutions Internship Program

Workforce Solutions Internship Program

RIDGWAY — Workforce Solutions for North Central PA, Inc. was awarded funding from the PA Department of Labor and Industry to support the 2018 State/Local Internship Program in the six-county region of Cameron, Clearfield, Elk, Jefferson, McKean, and Potter counties.

This region has experienced a significant population loss over the past 18 years of 6 percent with projections of a loss of another 30,000 in the next ten years due to individuals aging out of the workforce.

With a regional unemployment rate of 5.73 percent as of December 2017 and this looming population crisis creating a threat of a labor force shortage, the SLIP internship is a great strategy to assist in retaining our young people and making them aware of the career opportunities in their own backyard.

The goal of SLIP is to expose our youth to the many opportunities in our region that will encourage them to stay or return after post-secondary education providing our employers with a workforce into the future. Here is your chance as an employer to engage our youth and provide them with a positive and meaningful experience!

Eligible employers include for-profit and/or non-profit employers. Eligible interns must be between the ages of 16 and 24. The internship must pay a minimum of $10.15 per hour, be at least an 8-week experience for 37.5-40 hours per week. Recruitment of interns will be up to each individual employer.

Employers will be reimbursed the amount of wages paid to each approved intern plus the cost of FICA/Medicare and Workman’s Compensation. Employers must complete an application for each intern and submit to Pam Streich at pstreich@ncwdb.org. Depending on the number of applications received a limit per employer may be determined. The application and criteria can be found on Workforce Solutions website at www.workforcesolutionspa.com.

Applications are due by May 4. For more information call 245-1835.
