Depending on the available summer position, the temporary seasonal employment can pay between $8.50 – $15.00 per hour.
“We are delighted be able to offer the Summer Employment Program and Summer Food Service Program as they remain a staples in Camden,” Mayor Dana Redd said. “These programs are extremely popular and provide much needed services which our community depend on. Every year we see a high level of participation and we are expecting the same this summer.”
“They are tremendous programs which not only allow residents to gain income but also a good source of nutrition for our children,” City Council President Frank Moran said. “As a resident myself, I have witnessed first-hand the positive effects felt throughout the City. I encourage Camden residents to apply and take full advantage of this opportunity.”
The City’s Summer Youth Employment Program is a six week program designed to provide an educational experience and financial incentive for our City’s youth. It exposes them a structured work environment that has proven to motivate them to finish high school and pursue higher education. Youth participating gain the understanding that with an education, the possibility of attaining a quality job and an improved quality of life increases. The youth placed in offices and other work sites will also develop relationships with employees that foster positive interpersonal relationships.
The City’s Food Service Program distributes thousands of free lunches a day to Camden children. In previous years, the Summer Recreation Program had almost 4,000 Camden children participate throughout the summer.
We are seeking enthusiastic and dedicated individuals to provide Camden youth with a great summer experience filled with safe, fun activities. The City of Camden is an equal opportunity employer.
