Make a Difference by Participating in “Youth 2006 Summer Jobs Program”

Beginning July 10, UCLA will participate in the “HIRE LA’s Youth 2006 Summer Jobs Program” which helps young adults learn about career options. UCLA has been involved with the program for several years and has helped hundreds of youth gain exposure to the campus during the summer months.
Under the sponsorship of the UCLA Community-Based Learning Program, and with campus partners that include Government & Community Relations, Campus Human Resources, Healthcare Human Resources and the Career Center, the program will provide job placement to approximately 80 young adults. Campus Human Resources Staff Affirmative Action and Employment Services will offer workshops on diversity and job-seeking skills for participants in the program.

The program kicks off on July 10, 2006, and runs through August 18, 2006. Qualified youth, between the ages of 14 and 21, are expected to work five to six hours per day. Orientation for UCLA supervisors who plan to participate in the program will be held at the James West Alumni Center on June 27, 2006. There is no cost to UCLA departments who participate in the program.
