For the third straight year, the William Floyd School District partnered with the Suffolk County Department of Labor to offer opportunities for high school students through the Summer Youth Employment Program.

Over the course of the summer, several students received paid employment working with and being mentored by William Floyd custodians. The Department of Labor also provided opportunities to help students get ready for the workforce and receive extended job opportunities for an additional year after graduation through the Workforce Investment Act’s “Out of School Youth” program.

The district’s goal is to get all of our students career or college ready so it’s exciting to see them engaged in valuable working experiences,” said Dr. Malasia Walker, Director of Special Education, William Floyd School District. “This program also has special significance to me as my very first job was through the Department of Labor.”
