Required Documents

Applying for the Summer Youth Employment Program DOES NOT guarantee the applicant a summer job.

As a prospective Summer Youth Program Employee, the following documents are required and must be presented at the registration locations:

  • Copy of Proof of Parental Income (e.g. W-2 form)
  • Copy of Youth's Social Security Card
  • Copy of Youth's Birth Certificate
  • Copy of Youth's Identification (Driver's License, State ID or Student ID)
  • Copy of Proof of Youth's Residency (Progress Report, Report Card, School Mail, etc.)

Due to the overwhelming response for Summer Youth Employment Program applications, the required documents are mandatory and all must be presented at the time of registration. There are no exceptions.

Copiers are not available at the registration locations. Therefore, you are responsible for providing copies of the documents. Original documents WILL NOT be accepted.

Drug testing will be administered prior to employment.
