Youth Employment Service

Youth Employment Service has been around for more than 40 years. Initially, it began as an odd job service, helping teens and homeowners connect to each other for yard-work, babysitting, moving and other jobs. It expanded to provide subsidized employment opportunities. The first subsidized program, known as the Municipal Jobs Program or MJP, started in the 1980s and still exists today. This program serves over 75 youth and employs them at over 50 different worksites each summer. We have partnered with Cornell University, the Ithaca City School District, Ithaca College, Rotary, GIAC, Southside Community Center, the Tompkins County Chamber of Commerce and many others over the years to provide many different types of job opportunities for the teens of our community.
