HERKIMER – The experiences local 14- and 15-year-olds were able to have during the Herkimer-Fulton-Hamilton-Otsego BOCES summer youth employment and training program were highlighted during a closing reception on Aug. 10 at Herkimer BOCES.

Herkimer BOCES Director of Academic Services Roberta Matthews welcomed guests and spoke to the students and their families about how the program was put on through a Temporary Assistance for Needy Families [TANF] grant Herkimer BOCES received through Herkimer County in conjunction with the Herkimer County Working Solutions Career Center.

“We’re just very grateful we were able to provide this opportunity,” Matthews said.

The summer youth employment and training program at Herkimer BOCES ran for six weeks for local students who are ages 14 and 15. The students attended for five hours per day, four days per week and were paid $9 per hour through the grant.

Students attended two-week sessions in three of the four available career clusters: agriculture, food and natural resources; hospitality and tourism; information technology; and transportation, distribution and logistics.

During the Aug. 10 reception, students took the stage to speak about the various career cluster sessions: Ashley Amendolare for agriculture, food and natural resources; Shelby Davis for information technology; Madison Muller for transportation, distribution and logistics; and Kodi Wellington for hospitality and tourism.

Central Valley guidance counselor Michelle DelConte reviewed highlights from each of the sessions and from working with the students on 21st century skills and finances – such as budgeting and opening checking and saving accounts.

“I feel whole heartedly that they took advantage of the opportunities afforded to them this summer,” Del Conte said.
