Do you know any talented youth that may be searching for jobs this summer? The Division of Youth Services (DYS) is once again hosting recruitment for the most diverse and resourceful minds in the Birmingham area with their Fox 6 Kids and Jobs Program. They partner with Fox 6 News for this educational enrichment opportunity each year. There are several ways that youth can participate depending on their age group.
Collective job interviews for 14-15 years olds will begin promptly on April 18th at 8:00 AM (CT). Applications can also be completed at this time. The opportunity to take part in this portion of the youth job search will end at 9:00 AM (CT) on the date specified above. All youth must be escorted by a parent or guardian. There are no specific pre-requisites for admittance into this sector of the job program. Application packets can be acquired early on March 23rd through the button below. If you chose to complete this information early, it will be necessary to bring the form with you to the interview session on April 18th. The interview location is Fair Park Arena in Birmingham.
For the older age group of 16-21 year olds, the DYS is sponsoring the Summer Executive Internship (SEI) program. This is more of a career driven opportunity for individuals that desire to gain more experience in their presumptive career plans. These applications will also be available on March 23rd through the button below. Students interested in this program should send their completed applications to:
City of Birmingham Mayor’s Office Division of Youth Services
1608 7th Avenue North
Birmingham, AL 35203
You will be contacted by mail if you are selected for entry into the program. Speaking from personal experience as a previous DYS Summer Executive Intern, this program was essential to helping me formulate who and what I wanted to be. The theme of ambition that I so often push, was welded in me from my experiences working in a Public Relations firm and the DYS office I was placed within through this internship. I would definitely recommend this great opportunity for the driven youth of Birmingham!
For any additional questions or concerns, you can contact DYS at (205) 320-0879.
