Ivy Tech Community College has partnered with Sheridan Youth Assistance for the Summer Youth Employment (SYASYE) Program July 8 – 19 at its Noblesville location.

Ten students in grades eight through 12 are enrolled in the program and will explore career paths and training through community service, teamwork, leadership skill development, job shadowing and business tours. Students will earn $8 an hour during the program, working on projects that improve the local community. They will also learn what it takes for a business to be successful.

“Ivy Tech continues to strengthen partnerships among Ivy Tech and the Youth Assistance Programs throughout the county,” said Ivy Tech Noblesville Vice Chancellor, Dan Clark. “All of us are working together to expand career opportunities for Hamilton County youth.”

Companies that have signed on to work with students include Subaru, Wabash National, The Greenskeeper, Grace Care Center, Good Samaritan Network and Adams Township.

This opportunity was made possible through a $10,000 grant from the Crosser Family Foundation, a fund of the Hamilton County Community Foundation.
