Earlier in the year 19%, this group, working to- gether, submitted a request for funds to be used for summer employment of youth. Money has been approved for this pro- ject and doubled on another pro- ject which we had here last year. This has created a total of 131 ~obs for youth, with about a $50,000 dollar payroll to be paid by the State with Federal funds. Eligibility is restricted to those youth earnestly in need of work, eapecially those who can- not return to school without summer earnings. Students must be at least age 16 and under 22 years of age, and be return- lug to high school in the fall. Thus, high school graduates cannot be included. The jobs will be with the State Highway Department and other govern- ment agencies or non-profit or- ganizations, and will include clerical as well as menial labor jobs such as janitor or main- tenance. Some jobs will be in- side work while others are to be outdoors. All jobs are consi- dered to be work-training sit- uations where students will not only learn how to work but will have the opportunity to work with others on bonafide jobs earning their own salary. Motivation, where needed, and dependability hopefully can be instilled in these youth with the aid of a Youth Consultant hired for the summer to counsel with these students. Alabama State Employment Service staff has visited all high schools in Covington County during May to seek out those stu- dents available for summer work and to ascertain which would be qualified economic- cally for these particular jobs. School officials and the Depart- ment of Pensions and Security have been most helpful by work- ing with the Employment Service and aiding us in contacting eli- gible students. Students who have not already registered for these jobs may do so, if they desire, at the Alabama State Employment Service office in Andalusia, weekdays 8:30 to 4:30. Employers are urged to make jobs for students, as each year there are a number who desire summer jobs between school terms. Our youth are capable of performing various jobs and they are willing. Give them a chance! Some students seek jobs on their own and, if lucky, find something worthwhile to do. Others have a negative attitude and think, "Well, wlmt's the use? I won't find one anyway." This latter group needs to be reached somehow to show them that we do care and wish to help. So, with the aid of UncleSam, we know at least 131 of our youtt~ will be working a total of 234 hours each during sum- mer vacation, enabling them to earn about $375.00 to help with their living expenses and to return to school. Hire Youth This Summer! He that can take rest is greater than he that can take cities. -Benjamin Franklin.
