LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - WorkForce Solutions is accepting applications for their annual summer youth program from teens looking for summer jobs.

The program places 16- to 24-year-olds in paid jobs around their area.

WorkForce Solutions also needs employers interested in the program to contact them.

WorkForce will pay the teens, they just need someone to train them.

"I know we are in a bad economic situation right now and the summer youth job can help them develop the skills, attitudes, communication to succeed in the workforce world of today," said Betty Coutee of WorkForce Solutions.
