* Salisbury Youth Jobs Program
Salisbury Youth Jobs ProgramTime: 4:00 pm
What did you do during the summer when you were in the early years of high school, too young to get full-time summer employment, but too old for camp and day care? For more than 30 years, hundreds of youthful residents of Salisbury have had the opportunity to learn the duties and responsibilities of employment through the Salisbury Summer Job Program. With work at the Town Grove, Salisbury Central School, Scoville Library, and other local institutions, participants established a place in and connection to the community. The Salisbury Association Historical Society and Scoville Memorial Library are hosting an opportunity to share stories. Selections from the Salisbury Oral History Project will also be read. Please join us.
