The program, scheduled from June 17-20, is being sponsored by the city's Community Services Department and will offer comprehensive training and placement in volunteer positions to work closely with city staff.
The Leadership in Training (LIT) Program is for students entering grades 9 through 12 this fall. It will provide teens with the opportunity to develop job skills and prepare for future employment through training, hands-on experience and evaluation. There is limited space in the program.
To qualify for volunteer opportunities, teens must enroll in this mandatory training program. Training leaders will cover job skills, customer service, leadership and interviewing. Students who complete the training will be placed in a volunteer position and work closely with city staff in a number of departments, including Community Services (sports, aquatics, drama/summer camps or at the Firehouse Arts Center), the Operations Service Center, police department or the library.
Applications are available at Gingerbread Preschool, located at 4333 Black Ave., and online at www.ptownlife.org. The application deadline is Friday, April 18.
