Northwest-Shoals offers Summer Youth Employment Program

Northwest-Shoals Community College (NW-SCC) has
 partnered with the Alabama Department of Human Resources (DHR) to provide summer employment to
 youth in the area.

NW-SCC plans to employ up to 30 part-time positions on the Phil Campbell and Shoals campuses 
combined. To be eligible, youth must meet Alabama Department of Human Resources Family Assistance 
Income Guidelines.

“This partnership with DHR will allow Northwest-Shoals to utilize our career center to help those that are
 looking for part-time work this summer,” said NW-SCC president, Dr. Jeff Goodwin. “This program will 
allow our Patriot family an opportunity to mentor the youth in our community and help them gain quality 
experience and valuable connections.”

Eligible participants must be ages 16 to 24 and have a household income that meets the 2023 Federal
 Poverty Guidelines, which considers gross annual income and the size of the family unit. Eligibility for
 summer youth employment is not contingent on NW-SCC enrollment.

The Summer Youth Employment Program allows participants an opportunity to acquire life and job skills,
 as well as work experience. Participants will learn time management, dependability and the importance of
 working well with others. They will be placed with supervisors in various departments such as maintenance
 and facilities, student services and grant programs. Primary tasks will include physical labor and clerical
 support.

According to Amanda Peters, NW-SCC career services coordinator, the college has almost 10 employed 
and is actively looking for more eligible participants. The program will continue through August 31.
 Students will be paid $10 an hour for 20 hours per week.

Applicants must complete an application and required supporting documentation. To apply or for additional information, contact Amanda Peters, Coordinator of Career Services at 256-331-8121 or 
amanda.terry@nwscc.edu.
