Yakima Valley’s “100 Jobs for 100″ Kids Program to Start Monday
The 7th annual “100 Jobs for 100 Kids” program is set for Monday April 15 from 12:00pm to 5:00pm at the Southeast Yakima Community Center (1211 S. 7th Street). David Rolfe Executive Director of Safe Yakima Valley which is helping to coordinate the even says Between 300-400 kids will be offered at no charge: job readiness classes, mock interviews, resume and application coaching, food handler cards, and access to a youth-only job fair. Those who attend the event are also eligible and considered for placement into summer jobs. Rolfe says last year, the program placed 108 youth into summer jobs. With over 100 volunteers, countless employers and mentors, “100 Jobs for 100 Kids” is truly a community supported event. This program is coordinated by Safe Yakima Valley in partnership with Yakima Valley O.I.C. and the Yakima Downtown Rotary Club. Any adults or employers interested in supporting youth summer jobs should contact David Rolfe.
