Redwood City Gearing up for 2nd Annual “Youth REACH” Program! High School Students Can Explore Public Sector Career Opportunities, Gain New Skills
Redwood City, CA - September 24, 2007 - High school juniors and seniors in Redwood City are invited to join Youth REACH, an exciting, fun, and valuable program sponsored by the City of Redwood City.
For five interactive and motivating afternoon sessions, Youth REACH provides students with a great overview of City/public sector career options, interactive presentations by City staff all about their jobs and training, skill building tips, panel discussions with students that have worked for Redwood City, a career and education fair, and a lot more. Redwood City wants to help high school students plan for their future, and consider a career in the public sector.
The 2007 Youth REACH program will begin on October 25th and end on November 29th. Students will meet each Thursday from 3:30 – 5:30 pm during that five week period. Applications are currently being accepted. Space is limited, so interested students should call 780-7285 or email firstname.lastname@example.org right away for details on how to participate in Youth REACH. The deadline for applications is Friday, October 12th, 2007.
Students will learn about City career opportunities that they may not have considered – either right out of high school, or after college – and discover community resources for career and skill building that will be valuable for whatever direction they choose. They’ll be surprised by the breadth and variety of career options available with Redwood City, and networking with City staff will be of great value for the participants’ future career connections.
Youth REACH is designed to help high school juniors and seniors reach for the stars with new career options, training, skill building, networking, and knowledge about public sector career options and what it takes to get that job. It’s part of Redwood City’s commitment to building a great community together. Redwood High School and Sequoia High School students will receive community service credits for participation in the program.
