Anza Electric Cooperative Inc. is partnering with the Riverside County’s Youth Community Corps to provide internships for local young people.

This program is an opportunity for participants to get paid while learning skills that can be added to their resumes for future career opportunities.

The program is funded by the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act. Participants are paid by the county based on hours worked for periods covering six weeks or 12 weeks. The funding is set to expire Nov. 30, so the AEC encouraged anyone between the ages of 16-24 who is interested to apply as soon as possible.

The Riverside County Workforce Development Board provides oversight for the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act programs within the county. The WDB acts as a catalyst to provide seamless services among various workforce programs and provides community leadership around workforce issues.

Six Youth Opportunity Centers are located in Indio, Perris, Lake Elsinore, Moreno Valley, Hemet and Rubidoux. Workforce funds allocated to the WDB support job training, placement and business services delivered at these locations.
