Application for Lincoln Manufacturing Youth Employment Program

What is the Lincoln Manufacturing Youth Employment Program (LCYEP)?

LCYEP is a paid work experience opportunity for young adults made possible through an ARPA Workforce Development grant from the City of Lincoln, WIOA, and the American Jobs Center. Participants choose from local manufacturing companies to work with during the summer program to build their resumes and job skills. Participants will also attend weekly meetings to aid them in developing professional skills and learning about local entrepreneurs and other influential figures.

This application will be used for both LCYEP and the Workforce Investment and Opportunity Act (WIOA) program.

The application deadline is 5:00 p.m. on March 23, 2024.
