ORANGE, NJ - This summer, the Mayor's Office of Employment Training (MOET), through the direction of Orange Township Mayor Dwayne D. Warren, Esq., will provide youth (ages 16 and up) with enriching and constructive summer work experiences through job placements in the private and government sectors.
For the past three years, residents have been placed in various businesses through MOET and the Summer Food Program to hone positive work habits and acquire marketable skills. MOET's goal is to have program employees land a permanent position with a partner entity, based on their summer work experience.
While MOET and the Summer Food Program provide opportunities to earn money for the summer, Mayor Warren sees these programs as opportunities to gain meaningful work experience, learn and develop skills, attitudes, and commitment necessary to succeed in today's work world and gain exposure to various exciting career industries.
"These programs are critically important to our ongoing effort to ensure that our young people have productive, options for summer activities that prepare them for the future," said Mayor Warren. "I am happy with the number of local employers who have signed up, and I urge other businesses to join our effort by providing employment opportunities to Orange youth."
This year, The MOET application process will start on May 1, 2015 and will end by Friday, May 22, 2015. Applications will be available online or at City Hall, 29 N. Day Street in Orange. For more information please call Adrienne Wooten at 973-266-4045.
