Providing Opportunities for America's Youth
Young people who work after school and during the summer stay in school and don’t get into trouble as much as those who don't work. Companies who hire these workers help build stronger communities.
- Fill the talent pipeline. Create more and better future workers.
- Teach young people about your industry and company.
- Build company loyalty. Young people may become customers/champions of companies they know and admire.
CareerSource helps connect youth with summer employment opportunities on the First Coast.

Internships & Job Shadowing
If your company is offering internships or opportunities for students and recent graduates to learn more about their chosen industry by shadowing someone in the industry today, CareerSource can help connect young workers to your program.
CareerSource partners with area career academies to screen young workers and place students who are building skills in specific industries that make a good match with your company.
Are you a working man or woman or business-owner interested in sharing your story with our future workforce or letting youth participate in a job shadow at your business? Please email Patrice Abner or call (904) 798-9229 ext. 2218.
