Mahoning County commissioners allocated funds to various employers to pay those working in the summer youth-employment program.

The Youngstown Parks and Recreation Department was the largest recipient at $245,000.

Other recipients Thursday were the Mahoning County Juvenile Court, $55,200; Youngstown Neighborhood Development Corp., $29,000; Mahoning-Columbiana Training Association, $25,000; and the city of Struthers, $21,250.

Other employers under the program will receive their allocations when they complete documentation of the number of young workers they are hiring, said Robert E. Bush Jr., county Job and Family Services director.

Some of the other employers are Youngstown Metropolitan Housing Authority, Youngstown Board of Education and the city of Campbell.

The program, which will employ 90 to 100 people between age 14 and 24 from low- and moderate-income families between now and Aug. 31, is funded by a $680,000 Ohio JFS grant to the county’s JFS department.

The summer jobs, which include grass-cutting and cleaning, have an authorized pay ceiling of $10 an hour.

Bush said those still seeking employment in the program need to contact the individual employers concerning any remaining job openings.

Generally, if someone in a household is on any type of public assistance, a young person probably qualifies to work in this program, Bush said.
