Private Sector Job Connection

The Private Sector Job Connection provides work opportunities in the private sector for older youth, usually at least 18 years-old, who have had previous work experience in Earn & Learn or in another program. Employers submit job orders that outline the essential duties, qualifications and work requirements for each position they wish to fill. Students are screened to ensure they meet the qualifications specified by employers.

The Earn & Learn Poster Campaign highlights various youth in Milwaukee who have been part of the Private Sector Job Connection. Check out the posters here. Read about these youths' stories to learn more about the talent we have here in Milwaukee. We get hundreds of youth applicants who are all looking for a job in order to prepare themselves for the future. Help us help them by filling out a job order to hire a student this summer!
