In this third year of what is known as the Publication Charter program, some 25 students of UCHS have been receiving in-school preparation for this "school-to-work" program. Now, while continuing to be advised and instructed by their school coordinator during school hours, they are ready for the after-school "work-site" part of the program. This will make them available to Penn offices two hours a week, from now through June 1997. Time and day are flexible and can be discussed with the coordinator. Your experience as a supervisor and mentor are the most important factor in the program, for you may be giving a teenager his or her first "inside look" at the world of work.
This is a great way to provide community service while at the work-place. The program coordinator will be happy to speak with you about the young people and the program. Contact Fiona Conway at 732-5333, firstname.lastname@example.org, or get in touch with me at 898-2020, email@example.com.
