Youth Job Bank Application

Please read the following information carefully before completing the application at the bottom of the page.

How does the Job Bank work?

Any East Haddam youth ages 12 through 17 may submit an application to have their name listed in the Job Bank. Any East Haddam resident may call EHYFS to request a youth to hire. EHYFS provides names of potential employers based on type of job. The youth/parent contacts the employers directly.

Job bank applications must be submitted on an annual basis (January of each year).

Job Conditions

Employment request consist primarily of temporary and part time work. Wages, hours, transportation and any needed equipment must be agreed upon by the employer, youth and parents.


EHYFS does not screen employers or employees. There is no implied approval of the employer or youth. There is no implied recommendation of the skills of the employee. It is up to the youth and their parent to decide if this job and/or employer are appropriate. It is up to the employer to interview and check references. It is expected that parents, youth and employers will decide together upon the appropriateness of the job placement.

** Indoor job acceptance is up to the discretion of the youth/parent and employer. Applicants may still indicate their interest in receiving these jobs.
