Youth Snow Program Returns - Work for Teens, Aid for Seniors

The Department of Transportation is launching its Youth Snow Program again this year to benefit senior citizens and the disabled with removing snow from their public right-of-ways in city communities. This initiative will link student workers between the ages of 14 to 21 with senior citizens who need assistance in clearing snow from their public sidewalks.

Residents enrolled in the program will be matched with a city student who will shovel their public right-of-ways after a snow storm when schools are either cancelled or closed. Residents will get their public sidewalks cleared and students will receive a stipend for their work.

Residents and students who are interested in this program must register between Monday, September 26, 2016 through October 31, 2016 in order to be considered. Applications can be obtained at or by calling 311. Student workers may also email Registration forms will NOT be accepted after the October 31st deadline.
