The City of Pleasanton’s Community Services Department offers a teen leadership program this summer that provides comprehensive training and placement in a volunteer position to work closely with city staff.
The Leadership in Training (LIT) Program is for students entering grades 9 through 12 in fall of 2014 and provides teens with the opportunity to develop job skills and prepare for future employment through training, hands-on experience, and evaluation. There is limited space in the program.
A mandatory LIT training conducted by City of Pleasanton staff is scheduled from June 17-20, 2014 and will cover job skills, customer service, leadership, and interviewing. Students who complete the training will be placed in a volunteer position and work closely with city staff in a number of departments, including Community Services (sports, aquatics, drama/summer camps, or Firehouse Arts Center), the City Operations Service Center, police, or the library.
Applications are now available at Gingerbread Preschool, located at 4333 Black Avenue, or by visiting www.ptownlife.org. The application deadline is Friday, April 18, 2014.
