Youth Sponsorship Program
All youth between the ages 8-18 can request a youth sponsor before, during, or after their move to the Picatinny area. A youth sponsor can assist new youth to become familiar with their surroundings, services that are available, information about schools, shopping, culture, and maybe become your new friend! Youth sponsorship is coordinated by the Youth Education Support Services and will match sponsors to new youths according to gender, age/grade, interests/hobbies, and school attending. If you will be moving to Picatinny and would like to have a youth sponsor, call the center at 973-724-7183/ 973-724-5555. You may visit our website for more information.
Employment opportunities are available to teens ages 14-18 upon registration with the Teen Employment Program, a referral service that matches employers needs to teens skills.
