Dear Plainfield,
A key priority of the administration is to engage and provide resources and opportunities for Plainfield youth. On June 25th, the City of Plainfield had the Summer Youth Employment Program kick-off meeting and orientation for 150 Plainfield youth. This will begin a great opportunity and experience for first-time job holders and new hires.

These young people will have an opportunity to learn new skills—such as effective communication, scheduling, and prioritizing the work load in a structured environment; most importantly, they will achieve the pride and self-esteem that comes from being counted on as a team member, fulfilling responsibilities, and being financially compensated for their contributions to the work force. This experience will reinforce positive habits and will add to the foundation of these 150 Plainfield youth. 

Creating One Plainfield – One Future,

Mayor Adrian O. Mapp

City of Plainfield
