Summer JAM

Erie Summer Jobs and More (JAM) program is a collaborative effort between Erie County, Erie County Gaming and Revenue Authority, the Erie Community Foundation and other supportive individuals and organizations that have recognized the need to address employability issues for our disconnected youth population aged 16-21 years. The program provides job readiness training, career exploration, and employment opportunities for  youth living in Erie County.
