SUBJECT: Hire-A-Youth Program
This marks UCSD's 33rd year of participation in the Hire-A-Youth Summer Internship Program in collaboration with the Neighborhood House Association and the Human Resources-Equal Opportunity/Staff Affirmative Action Division. The purpose of this program is to provide work-training positions for students, ages 14-16, who come from economically disadvantaged families. UCSD assumes responsibility for providing training and supervision for each youth at no direct cost to the University. The application deadline is July 6, 1999.
The tentative work schedule begins the week of July 12, 1999. The final work day will be in mid-August depending upon the work option selected (3 or 6 weeks). The youths are paid minimum wage by the Neighborhood House Association.
A few changes have been made to the program this year. One major change is that there are two options for the number of hours a youth can work in a department. The other change is that the youths will be required to attend a work-readiness training session weekly which will be explained in the supervisor's orientation.
The work options are:
A.	Regular Academic Year Students:
Youths will work a minimum of 210 hours - 35 hours per week (for approximately 6 weeks)
B.	Year-Round School Students:
Youths will work a minimum of 90 hours - 30 hours per week (for 3 weeks)
As in prior years, it is a requirement of the program that all supervisors who have requested students attend a supervisors' orientation. Please plan to have the supervisor and an alternate supervisor attend this orientation in the event of absence this summer. This orientation will be held Tuesday, June 29, 1999 at 1:00 p.m. at the Price Center-
Santa Barbara/Los Angeles Room. Updated information on this year's program will be provided by the Neighborhood House Association as well as the coordinator for the program on campus. Orientation attendance is required to be considered an eligible work site.
If you are interested in helping young people successfully enter the world of work by participating this summer, please complete the attached job opportunity application and e-mail it to Linda Olvera (lolvera@ucsd.edu). If you have more than one location, please complete a separate form for each location. Please note that your application must be received no later Tuesday, July 6, 1999. If you have any questions, please call (858)534-3694.
