Welcome to the San Mateo County Jobs for Youth (JFY) program!

JFY began in 1982 serving all youth 14-21 years of age who reside in San Mateo County with employment services. Services do not have specific eligibility or income requirements and we serve all youth regardless of socioeconomic or risk level.

The program is designed to help youth increase their self-esteem and gain important job seeking skills. The youth will master the job application form, learn to communicate more effectively, gain interviewing skills, receive examples of resumes, cover letters, list of references, and thank you letters/emails to employers.

On July 1, 2017, Jobs for Youth moved to County of San Mateo Human Resources and we are busy modernizing our program! We are continuing to honor our past as we embrace the future!  We provide job preparation workshops that are now referred to as Landing the Job Workshops in high schools, libraries, Boys and Girls Clubs throughout our San Mateo County community. In the Landing the Job Workshops, the youth receive one-on-one support with the goal of attaining gainful employment and becoming responsible adults in our community.

We look forward to meeting you!
