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

The SMCJFY 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 socio-economic 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. 

We are also busy modernizing our program!  Jobs for Youth is now mobile, providing employment support while on the go!  Search for jobs, internships, and scholarships on the free app, available from the App store or Google Play.    We are also excited to announce that Jobs for Youth moved to HR as of July 1, 2017! 

As we continue to improve our services, we encourage you to download our free mobile app to learn more about our community events and upcoming Job Preparation Workshops throughout San Mateo County.  In the Job Preparation Workshops, the youth receive one-on-one support with the goal of attaining gainful employment and becoming responsible adults in our community.
