Youth Service Corps

Youth Service Corp Cover

In response to Hartford’s youth unemployment crisis, Mayor Bronin pledged during the first year of his new administration to partner with the community to connect Hartford’s young people to part-time, yearlong employment.

Since its launch in July 2016, The Mayor's Youth Service Corps (YSC) has provided 750 Hartford youth with an opportunity to earn a paycheck while strengthening neighborhoods.

YSC members receive yearlong, part-time employment with flexible scheduling. They work with a Youth Development Specialist on their personal and professional goals.

YSC members engage in community service-based projects designed to impact Hartford neighborhoods. Projects include free lawn care services or snow removal for Seniors & Disabled Residents.

By completing these projects, Youth Service Corps Members help build safer, stronger neighborhoods.
