MUSCLE SHOALS & PHIL CAMPBELL, ALA. — Northwest Shoals Community College (NWSCC) has partnered with the Alabama Department of Human Resources (DHR) to provide summer employment to youth in the area starting June 1.

NWSCC plans to employ up to 30 part-time positions on the Phil Campbell and Shoals campuses combined. To be eligible, youth must meet Alabama Department of Human Resources Family Assistance Income Guidelines.

Eligible participants must be ages 16 to 24 and have a household income that meets the 2024 Federal Poverty Guidelines, which considers gross annual income and the size of the family unit. Eligibility for summer youth employment is not contingent on NWSCC enrollment.

The Summer Youth Employment Program allows participants an opportunity to acquire life and job skills, as well as work experience. Participants will learn time management, dependability, and the importance of working well with others. They will be placed with supervisors in various departments such as athletics, maintenance, information technology, student services, and grant programs.

The program will continue through July 31. Students will be paid $10 an hour for 20 hours per week.

Applicants must complete an application and required supporting documentation. To apply or need additional information, please contact Amanda Peters, NWSCC Community Partners Liaison, at 256-331-8121 or
