HIRED! program offers teens experience, employment

By Amy McLaughlin

Fort Huachuca’s Child, Youth and School Services, a organization within the Directorate of Family, Morale, Welfare and Recreation, offers a workforce-preparation apprenticeship program, HIRED!, to teens 15 to 18.

HIRED! is offered in four, 12-week terms per year, with the largest term taking place in the summer. Apprentices may work up to two terms per calendar year and are allowed to participate for three consecutive years.

Some workforce preparation training is involved, and the training hours are counted toward total work hours for that term.

Payment, which is distributed four to six weeks following the completion of each term, is $500 per term for the first two terms, $625 for each of the third and fourth terms, and $750 per term for the fifth and sixth terms. Additionally, apprentices may work two terms simultaneously over the summer and receive a $1,000 payment.

HIRED! apprentices work throughout the FMWR footprint, which includes, but is not limited to, CYSS facilities and programs, Barnes Field House and MWR Rents. Teens are required to commit to working 15 hours in a 7-day period during terms that occur during the school year and 18 hours for 10 weeks during the summer term.

“Being a HIRED! apprentice takes a commitment from the youth and a full commitment from parents,” said Deborah Wambach, Middle School and Teen Program director and HIRED! coordinator. Transportation is not provided, so parents should have a plan in place to make sure their child is able to report for work, she explained.

To become a HIRED! apprentice, youths must be registered with CYSS.

The next term begins a week after school breaks for summer and ends a week before school resumes in the fall. Wambach encourages anyone who is interested in applying to pick up an application at the Youth Center or the CYSS registration office as soon as possible.

For more information about the Hired! Program, visit Debbie Wambach at the Youth Center after 11 a.m., Tuesdays through Fridays, or call 533.3205 during the same timeframe.
