YouthWorks Jobs Often Serve as Stepping-stones for College, Careers

Berkeley, California (Friday, September 30, 2016) - Berkeleyans between 14 and 25 years of age are encouraged to apply to be part of YouthWorks, which allows youth to get valuable work experience while getting paid.

YouthWorks places local youth in after-school jobs that last up to 7 weeks, for up to 15 hours per week, earning $10.50 per hour, beginning in early January. Youth can work in computers and IT, office administration, childcare and youth development, and more!

Valuable work experience can play an important role for young people's professional, financial, and emotional well-being. Over the years, thousands of Berkeley youth have used YouthWorks as a stepping stone for career- and college-preparation. Applications can be picked up beginning October 3 and are due by Monday October 31, 2016 (or sooner!)

Submit completed applications to the YouthWorks office.  Youth must be at least 14 years of age at the time of application and need to come in person to the YouthWorks office to pick up an application.

If you need to create your very first resume or spruce up the one you have, YouthWorks and the Berkeley Public Library can help. Come to FREE resume workshops:

Wednesdays October 12th and 19th
4:00 PM - 5:30 PM
Central Branch of the Berkeley Public Library

You can find more information about getting an after-school job through YouthWorks and the answers to frequently asked questions by visiting the YouthWorks homepage.
