Know the Rules

Before you start working, you should know what your employer can and cannot require of you. As a young worker you are limited in the types of jobs and number of hours you can work. The rules are different for agricultural work. States also have rules, and employers must follow both.

Join the Corps

Job Corps is a free education and training program that helps young people learn a career, earn a high school diploma or GED, and find and keep a good job. For eligible young people at least 16 years of age that qualify as low income, Job Corps provides the all-around skills needed to succeed in a career and in life.

AmeriCorps places thousands of young adults into intensive service positions where they learn valuable work skills, earn money for education, and develop an appreciation for citizenship. Focus areas include: disaster services, economic opportunity, education, environmental stewardship, healthy futures, and veterans and military families.

California Conservation Corps provides an opportunity to work outdoors, earn a paycheck, advance your education, learn basic job skills and make progress toward a career.  You help the environment, meet new people and go to new places.  You can also live away from home.  Corpsmembers- young men and women between the ages of 18 and 25-- sign up for a year of working outdoors to improve California's natural resources.  They also assist with emergency response: fighting fires, floods, earthquakes and pest infestations.
