DC’s Summer Youth Employment Program

Going after your dreams and making a difference isn’t always about being in the entertainment industry.  There are many ways to work locally and make a change in young people’s lives no matter where you are.  Since I was a teen, I always loved working with children and youth; that has always been my passion!  My first meaningful mentoring opportunity was while I was home from college, living in Philadelphia and I worked with youth who had either dropped out of high school, weren’t ready for college or simply wanted to make money to help provide for their family.  They got the opportunity to work with local businesses and on days when they did not work, myself and other counselors ran training programs/workshops to assist them with resume composition, interview practice, work attire selection, etc.  My life was forever changed!
 
 
DC has the same employment program and they are accepting applications/resumes beginning on 1/25/13 at 12:15pm!  Please pass the word along to DC youth, ages 14-21.  This could be the step they need to change their life around or to simply learn the importance of hardwork.  Click on the link below and let’s start to enrich our youngsters.  BE THE CHANGE YOU WANT TO SEE!!!
