UC San Diego will be partnering with the San Diego Unified School District's Hire-A-Youth 2009 Summer Internship Program to provide summer employment opportunities for students ages 14 to 21 in an effort to help them successfully enter the workforce. We are seeking opportunities or tasks that involve reading, writing, computer and organizational skills. The program begins June 22 and ends July 31, 2009.
The mission of the Hire-A-Youth Summer Internship Program is to provide opportunities for high school students to experience a "real world" work environment during which a student worker has an opportunity to become a productive member of an organization and develop job skills. Additionally, students will gain an understanding of the important relationship between academics and the world of work, leading to the goals of increased self confidence and success in school.
Hire-A-Youth Summer Internships for students will also promote diversity by exposing diverse populations from the San Diego community to educational and employment opportunities at UC San Diego. As an employer, UC San Diego will have a San Diego Unified School District Coordinator to assist as needed. Students will be paid and insured, including Workers' Compensation, through a federally funded grant awarded to the San Diego Unified School District.
Placing a summer intern is a cost effective way to complete essential tasks in your department. If you want to help these students by participating in the program this summer, please submit an intern request form by June 1, either electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org or by campus mail to:
Equal Opportunity/Staff Affirmative Action
