School-to-Work Program

Are you in need of free summer office help? Are you interested in providing a learning and career development opportunity for inner-city youth?

The Office of Human Resource Services/Employment is seeking departments to participate in the School-To-Work summer program, funded through the Federal Youth Works program. The objective of this program is to "provide opportunities for youth to acquire skills, gain an understanding of the demands of the work place and acquire knowledge of related careers." Students are required to work a maximum of 120 hours over a period of six weeks from June 30 through August, 1997. Wages are paid through the program. In addition, students receive coaching on employment expectations and standards. Students will be matched with work sites through the Employment Office.

All that is needed from you is time--to coach and supervise these young people!

To find out more, join us on Wednesday , May 21 from 12-1 p.m. in the Smith Penniman Room of Houston Hall, or call Ron Story, Staffing and Recruitment Specialist at 898-1363,
