You could end up working at a park, a library, a daycare center, a restaurant, or a retail store!

Program participants are selected based on their applications, assessment scores or transcript, and work interests.

There are two steps to get started:

  1. Submit your application.
  2. Email or drop off a current report card or transcript.

AGE MINIMUM

Applicant must be between ages 14-21 (MUST TURN 14 BY May 20, 2022) and a permanent resident of Pima County. Verification of date of birth and residency will be required during the orientation process.

NOTES FOR TEENS WHO ARE NOT CURRENTLY IN SCHOOL

If you are not currently enrolled in school, you must schedule and take an assessment test.

Note that the TABE isn’t a pass or fail test. Instead, it helps program representatives to know which program might be better suited for that individual. If there is a basic skills deficiency, then students may be referred to a basic skills program where they can attend school and work on improving their reading and math scores. They STILL GET PAID for attending school as long as they complete the program successfully.

Deadline for all applicants to either submit a report card or take an assessment test is March 25, 2022.

If your teen has an IEP or 504 plan in school, please call 520-724-9639 and ask for the disability documentation that needs to be attached to his/her report card or unofficial transcript.
