TeenWorks and the Sonora Sunrise Rotary Club have created a program designed to assist disadvantaged youth with finding, improving and retaining employment.
Thanks to a grant from the Rotary Club, TeenWorks is offering micro-loans to Tuolumne County teens age 14-19 to help them improve opportunities to obtain, advance in and retain jobs. The no-interest loans may be used to fund job-related needs, such as, but not limited to:
Safety equipment, small tools, and supplies needed for your job.
Uniforms required by your employer that are not suitable for ordinary wear.
Protective clothing required in your work, such as hard hats, safety shoes, and glasses.
Physical examinations required by your employer.
Fees to employment agencies and other costs to look for a new job in your present occupation
Certain educational expenses.
The payback provisions will be flexible, as stated in a loan agreement on a case-by-case basis.
TeenWorks and the Rotary Club believe this program will encourage employment skills and responsibility as well as financial accountability.
Youth may apply for a loan here.
