The Port Arthur Economic Development Summer Youth Employment Program is open to students who are residents of the City of Port Arthur and 2019 graduates of High School. The goal of this Employment Program is to offer successful candidates an opportunity to improve their skills as well as the experience of working in a business environment closely relative to their field of study. Participants generally will find the experience to be rewarding and interesting.
The Port Arthur Economic Development Corporation will pay an hourly salary to all participants. Participants will be responsible for their own living accommodations and transportation. Most positions will be located within the City of Port Arthur, Texas (some positions could be offered in Beaumont or other nearby communities) and will be a maximum of eight weeks in duration.
