2017 Summer Youth Program Underway

The 2017 Summer Youth Program is set to kick off this year on June 5, 2017. This year we will have education week for both sessions June 5-June 9th from 8 am to noon.  We will also be providing two classrooms for teaching during education week to allow us to teach material at a different pace based on the needs of the youth.  We will however, continue to integrate students during breaks, games, ice breakers, and other activities.  Each student participates in one week of education and then four weeks of work.  The work weeks are June 12th- July 7th and July 10th – August 3rd.    Monday through Thursday from 8am to 1:30pm with the exception of the Fourth of July week.  The week of July 4th, participants will work on Friday to make up for the holiday.  We currently have multiple confirmed sites including Taylor Motors, Athens High School, The Laurels, Memory Gardens, Sandlot, Sweet Arts Bakery and Holiday Inn Express.   PersonnelPlus appreciates the support and partnerships we have with these businesses.

Last summer the staff at PersonnelPlus took turns providing a healthy breakfast option for the students before they went to work.  This year we would like to increase what we are able to offer the participants by providing a box lunch at the work site.  We are asking local business and partnering agencies to help us support this cause.  If you know of anyone who would be interested in sponsoring boxed lunches please have them contact PersonnelPlus.

Also this year we were able to secure a representative from People’s Bank in Athens to come during Education Week to set up accounts for students who may not already have one.  This will allow them to have direct deposit of their pay checks and easier access to their money.

With the increase of services over the summer comes a need for an increase in job trainers.  We are excited we have several past job trainers express an interest in returning this year.  We will still need to hire a few job trainers to accommodate the participant demand.  If you know of anyone who might be interested in working as a Summer Job Trainer please have them stop at the PersonnelPlus office to pick up an application or email there resume to
