The Pima County One-Stop Career Center Summer Youth Programs are accepting applications.

The program allows young people between the ages of 14-21 to earn minimum wage while working for city and county government agencies, the University of Arizona and local participating businesses.

The deadline to apply and set up an assessment test is March 14.

Jobs include administrative support, clerk, child care aide, recreation aide, library page, patient care technician, discovery guide at the Children's Museum and surgery tech trainee at the Pima Animal Care Center.

Those who apply for Department of Transportation or Regional Wastewater Reclamation Department jobs that involve outside manual labor will be put in a special pool of applicants, which could increase the possibility of being selected.

Workers can also earn high school elective credits.

Work hours can range from 20 to 40 hours per week, with placement at job sites lasting from four to seven weeks.

To apply and set up an assessment test, call 798-0546.

You can also apply online at https://secure.pima.gov/summeryouth or grab an application at a local high school, community center or library.
