The CARE Program hires 14- to 20-year-olds who live in Columbia, MO, attend a Columbia, MO school, or have a parent/guardian who works for the City of Columbia. CARE hires them and places them at local businesses where they gain much needed real-world hands-on work experience. CARE’s Summer Program offers a six-week program in which approximately 125 14- to 20-year-old trainees are hired at $9.50 per hour to work approximately 20 hours per week at a local work site.
CARE summer program applications are available December 1 through February 28; however, applicants are STRONGLY ENCOURAGED to apply as early (as close to December 1) as possible. To apply, visit: https://www.gocomojobs.com/postings/search (search for CARE Summer Trainee 2021). One-on-one assistance filling out the online application is available by contacting the CARE office at (573) 874-6300 or Tonia.Turner@CoMo.gov.
