Albany-  As businesses continues to struggle in today's economy, south Georgia teens could struggle to find summer jobs.

Now, there's help. The southwest Georgia Department of Labor received a $39,957 grant to help youth in 14 counties find summer jobs. Often employers such as Water, Gas, and Light, the Albany Fire Department, and Palmyra Nursing Home hire young adults through the Department of Labor for six weeks of work.

"It takes a little background work to go out and find the employers and we will call some employers that we worked with before. We'll ask our Department of Labor career centers to assist us some with the location of employers," said Chuck Fields, Southwest Georgia Department of Labor Executive Director.

Workers will be paid minimum wage. You must qualify with the Department of Labor's Workforce Investment Board to get a job. To apply call (229) 522-3594.
