UHD is once again partnering with Workforce Solutions to create career opportunities for young adults while simultaneously meeting the University’s human resources needs.
In the past, UHD only had access to Workforce Solutions during the summer, but the program has been extended and is now available year round.
What is Workforce Solutions?
Workforce Solutions is an organization that selects young adults, ages 16 to 24, and provides them with opportunities to build a career. These young adults can work up to 30 hours per week and may be a high school senior, graduate or drop out.
How does it work?
By providing Workforce Solutions participants with an entry-level position in their related field of study, employers, such as UHD, can help these young adults determine whether the career they selected is a good fit. The salary is payable through Workforce Solutions.
Since this program is for young adults, all UHD program participants (any faculty or staff who will be working directly with or supervising the youth assigned to their department) will need to comply with the requirements of the Campus Program for Minors (CPM), which consists of (a) Child Protection Training and (b) criminal background check.
To participate in this program, please complete the following:
- Security Sensitive Position Questionnaire must be returned in person or via interoffice mail to Erica Morales in S910
- 2016 Work Experience Profile must be returned in person or interoffice mail to S910
- Register to CPM training by clicking the link: https://uhdforms.formstack.com/forms/registrationcpt
ESO cannot assign any youth to a department until the employees working directly with the young adult have successfully met these requirements.
For more information about the program, please contact Erica Morales.
