CORINTH – As many as a dozen young people between 16 and 25 years old will have a chance at summer employment in Corinth through a $35,000 grant to the city from the Mississippi Department of Transportation.
Applications have already poured in from early notification of the grant, said Kim Ratliff, city projects coordinator, so no additional applications are being accepted.
Work will focus primarily focus on grounds maintenance and landscaping on state-maintained roads, including Tate Street/Highway 145 and Cass Street, as well as historic properties.
Called the Urban Youth Corps Program, the experience includes weekly basic life skills workshops while the youths work in June and July.
