The state Department of Defense is the latest government agency to offer federally funded jobs to people age 14 to 23 through the state’s Summer Youth Employment Program.

The Defense Department is joining the state Department of Labor and Industrial Relations in hiring young people for jobs in nonprofit and government agencies; other work sites now include private businesses, said Toni Schwartz, spokeswoman for the state Department of Human Services.

The work program is being funded by the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families program through the Human Services Department until Sept. 30, Schwartz said. Temporary jobs pay $8 an hour and up.
