Are you a Mesa teen entering your junior or senior year of high school in August 2018? If so, get a head start on exploring careers with Mayor Giles' new Mayor's TeenForce.
"This year, the Mayor's Youth Committee recommended more work opportunities for Mesa teens," Mayor John Giles said. "The new Mayor's TeenForce is a great way to give our high school juniors and seniors experience in a career they are interested in before they go to college or enter the workforce."
The Mayor's TeenForce is a four-week program that places Mesa students in local businesses for short term internships along with service projects and job skills training.
Participants will focus on leadership, teamwork, communication, responsibility and compassion to help prepare them for the workforce in their area of interest.
Some of the host industries include healthcare, engineering, education and law.
The commitment is less than 20 hours per week and includes three four-hour days of interning and one five-hour day of professional development or service learning.
Applications are due June 17 with an orientation meeting on June 21. Internships begin on June 25. For more information about Mayor's TeenForce or to sign up go to mesaaz.gov/TeenForce.
