Who, What, Where, When, Why

I'm writing to you to let you know that myself and Amanda Hart, SF2020 Financial Capabilities Service Coordinator, are officially beginning the recruitment process for the 2016-2017 edition of the Youth Internship Program (YIP) that will host 10 students from DDHS/Fir Ridge in internships located in East Portland.  

We are hoping to partner with the East Portland Action Plan on this edition of the program and will know soon more about this, but wanted to ensure you had the recruitment flyer to distribute to students and the program overview for yourselves.  

We are hoping that you can review this information and pass along the flyer to students you think would be excellent fits for this program! Attached you will find:
  • Initial Student Recruitment flyer to indicate interest in the program.  We may have an online edition soon, but for now, please have any interested students complete this form and get it back to myself via email or in my office in 233C.
  • Program Overview Document with the timeline of the program and a general description.  We will soon have descriptions of each partner's offering in this program and will pass those on as they are available.

Our anticipated recruitment timeline is as follows:
  • Students complete an interest flyer by early February!
  • MFS Team contacts student to answer questions, provide additional information, and set up an interview
    • MFS Team has student complete an application, including references and check-in with counselor - prior to interview
  • Student interviews with MFS Team + MFS Team conducts student counselor check-in
  • Post-interview, MFS team contacts references - as needed - and begins selection process in collaboration with school and partner staff
We look forward to working with all of you to recruit an amazing team if YIP interns this year from David Douglas and Fir Ridge and hope to have exciting news soon regarding EPAP partnerships!
