Regional partnership helped youth overcome barriers to employment

Wednesday, September 30

Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Oxnard and Port Hueneme
Martin V. Smith Youth Center
1900 West 5th Street, Oxnard

More than 400 youth ages 14 to 24 spent their summer learning how to find and keep a summer job, despite barriers such as being a foster youth, a teen parent, incarcerated or having a disability. Now the Boys & Girls Club will salute them.

The Summer Jobs for Youth Program is a partnership between the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Oxnard and Port Hueneme, the Ventura County Office of Education and Oxnard City Corps. The youth participated in an eight-hour training course to learn work readiness, teamwork and leadership skills. They were then matched to a work site to learn workplace skills and habits, while earning money for the summer. 


  • Flag salute by a Summer Jobs for Youth participant
  • Recognition and award presentation for participating employers
  • Award ceremony for Summer Jobs for Youth participants
