The Youth Job Center of Evanston is offering its Odd Job Program this year to Chicago-area residents.  The Odd Job Program originated from a notable need to provide jobs for younger teens, aged 14-15, who often have a more difficult time finding regular employment despite a willingness to work. The program has since extended to include all YJC clients who are eager and willing to complete jobs such as raking, moving furniture, cleaning basements and attics, running errands, shoveling snow, completing administrative work and more.

Community members looking for temporary assistance with such jobs can simply call the YJC with their request and receive a list of qualified, motivated candidates looking for job experience.

 Requirements include a safe environment for the YJC client and pay of at least minimum wage. Community members should call the YJC at least three days in advance to ensure placement of a candidate. For more information or to request help with a job, call the Youth Job Center, 847-864-5627.
