Raleigh plans information sessions for teens interested in summer jobs

Posted December 6, 2016

Is this the summer that your teen will get their first job? Or, has your college student not lined up that summer internship yet?

Raleigh is offering high school students and college students a chance to line up their summer plans sooner than later. During winter break, Raleigh will hold three information sessions about summer job opportunities with the city for college and high school students.

During the information sessions, prospective applicants can sit in on small group presentations about specific summer jobs and the application process. About 700 to 800 college and high school students work for the city each summer, according to a press release. They typically fill jobs such as lifeguard, camp counselor, recreation instructor, recreation leader and cashier.

Staffers from the city’s human resources and parks, recreation and cultural resources departments, along with the Raleigh Summer Youth Program, will lead the presentations.

Here's when the information sessions are scheduled:

  • 4 p.m. to 6 p.m., Dec. 20, at John Chavis Community Center, 505 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd.
  • 4 p.m. to 6 p.m., Dec. 29, at Brier Creek Community Center, 10810 Globe Rd.
  • 4 p.m. to 6 p.m., Jan. 4, at Laurel Hills Community Center, 3808 Edwards Mill Rd.
