Teen REACH Program Lets High School Students Explore Public Sector Career Opportunities, Gain New Skills
Redwood City, CA - January 8, 2009 - High school sophomores, juniors, and seniors in Redwood City are invited to join an exciting, fun, and motivating program sponsored by the City of Redwood City. For six interactive afternoon sessions, Redwood City’s Teen REACH provides students with a great overview of City and public sector career options, discussions and activities with City staff to learn about their careers, skills- building workshops, a career and education fair, and lots more.
THE DEADLINE FOR APPLICATIONS IS JANUARY 22, 2009. Space is limited, so interested students should call 780-7288 or email firstname.lastname@example.org right away for details on how to participate in Teen REACH.
The 2009 Teen REACH program begins on February 26th and end on April 2nd. Students will meet every Thursday from 3:30 – 5:30 PM during the six week period. Redwood High School and Sequoia High School students will receive community service credits for participation in the program.
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. It’s a part of Redwood City’s commitment to building a great community together.
