Youth 2008 Summer Jobs Program

Published: 2008.06.10

Beginning July 16, 2008, UCLA will participate in the “HIRE LA’s Youth 2008 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 (CBL), and with campus partners that include Government & Community Relations (GCR), Campus Human Resources (CHR), Health System Human Resources and the UCLA Career Center, the program will provide job placement on campus to approximately 100 young adults this summer.

Program participants will also attend workshops on career focus, college preparation and community advocacy.

The program kicks off on July 16, 2008, and runs through August 15, 2008. Qualified youth, who are between the ages of 15 and 21, are expected to work five hours per day. UCLA supervisors who plan to participate in the program will attend an Orientation meeting. There is no cost to UCLA departments who participate in the program.

If you would like to provide UCLA work experience for a young person this summer, fill out the Work Order Request Form in Related Information and return it to Pam Schachter by email at pschachter@oid.ucla.edu, by fax to (310) 206-1455, or send it via campus mail to Community Based Learning Program, 405 Hilgard Ave., 70 Powell, Los Angeles, CA, 90095-1635. The deadline for submissions is June 27, 2008
