Pleasanton city officials are recruiting teen students interested in becoming part of the web team overseeing Ptownlife.org, a city website that serves teens and families with a range of information on activities, services, resources, and youth job and volunteer opportunities.
Applicants, who must be entering eighth through 12th grade next fall, will be helping city staff with design, content and overall site management and marketing, according to city spokeswoman Tracy Dunne.
"Students gain valuable work experience while they report on new and interesting things happening in the community, take photos and write articles for the site," Dunne said in a statement.
Interested students must be willing to commit to a one-year term (August 2017 to August 2018), 1.5 hours per week working on the website in city offices and mandatory trainings in August and January. The positions are unpaid.
The city is accepting applications through May 5, available online at ptownlife.org. Return completed application, along with a work sample, to Gingerbread Preschool at 4333 Black Ave., or email to email@example.com
All applications will be reviewed and qualified participants will be contacted for interviews to be scheduled on May 16 and 18 after school, according to Dunne. For more information, contact Nicole Thomas or Joelle Glushenko at 931-3432.
