March 24 is the Application Deadline for the 2014 Mayor’s Youth Academy Summer Employment Programs

The deadline to apply for the 2014 Mayor’s Youth Academy Summer Employment programs is 7 p.m. on Monday, March 24. MYA applications are available at all Richmond public high schools and at . Youth may also apply in person on Monday, March 24 from 3 to 7 p.m. at the MYA offices in the East District Initiative, 701 North 25th Street.

Launched by Mayor Dwight C. Jones in 2010, MYA is designed to develop Richmond’s future leaders and workforce. Youth ages 13 through 19 years old are encouraged to apply.

New for the summer of 2014, the academy is offering a MYA Junior program. Recognizing the need for earlier career development intervention, the MYA Junior offering will target middle school youth and provide them Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) related experiential learning opportunities and age appropriate introduction to STEM vocations and careers. Program components include the science of roller coasters at Kings Dominion, robotic engineering at ECPI-U, exposure to regional STEM job sites and employers through site visits, and much more. MYA Junior incentives include a Supernova family membership to the Science Museum of Virginia, a graphing calculator, and a $150 incentive payment upon successful completion of all program requirements.

It is the mission of MYA to provide development opportunities to youth throughout the city to include: job readiness training, leadership development, exposure to entrepreneurship, mentoring and post-secondary career exploration. Selected youth will receive real work experience and gain skills necessary for future employment.

For additional information regarding this opportunity, please contact the MYA office at (804) 646-7480.
