What is Serve Here CT?
Serve Here CT is a web site that matches young adults with potential employers. But there is much more to Serve Here CT than just an employment web site. It is a five year demonstration program jointly funded by a group of philanthropists and the State of Connecticut that provides $10,000 to the employer to help cover salary and benefit costs associated with that new hire for the first year. It is a program that writes down a portion of the Serve Here CT participants college debt, and it is a program to help those adults who want additional educational skills to acquire that training. Lastly, it is a two semester learning experience in which participants employ the skills they will learn to better themselves, their employment settings, and their communities.
