RDA runs an eight week summer employment program providing Rosedale youth with work experience at a local business in an area of personal interest.
This program provides early employment opportunities for 14 to 17 year-old youth who are generally hired less frequently than older youth. Participants are required to interview, attend job skills training sessions, and participate in a job fair before they begin working. Weekly “Lunch and Learn” sessions bring in speakers on topics from budgeting to resume building to interview skills.
The program will run from June 7th - July 30th, with orientation starting on May 31st. To be accepted into the program, students must submit an application followed by an interview conducted by RDA staff. Students accepted into the program will be notified by May 7th.
