The 2014 Teen Employment Program has announced two hiring event dates, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. April 18 and from 10 a.m. to noon April 26. The hiring events will be held at the Catlin School Age Care Program located in building 4655 on Catlin Drive. Teens need to attend one of the two events to apply.

Teens will have the opportunity to meet supervisors and/or staff from each participating program site who are hiring. Supervisors will be conducting interviews and human resources staff will be accepting applications onsite. Teens are encouraged to be prepared and have a completed application ready to turn in. Applications can be downloaded from nafjobs.com.

The program held several pre-employment training classes in March, covering areas such as interview skills, resume writing and dressing for success. Those classes were optional and were not required in order to attend the hiring events in April.

The teen employment program provides an opportunity for teens to experience entry-level work and gain knowledge from mentors of all professional levels. Weekly time away from the worksite is scheduled, where an education and career development curriculum is incorporated through interactive learning activities. These activities are designed with the Boys and Girls Clubs of America and the 4-H Program.

The program will be hiring for 25 positions for the summer. Teens hired may work in one of the following: community services, athletics, child and youth programs, or Fleet and Family Readiness programs. They will be scheduled up to 20 hours a week for a maximum of 12 weeks.
