Mayor Day and the City Council, in partnership with Junior Achievement and the Greater Salisbury Committee, created the program last summer to provide teens in Salisbury with the skills and knowledge they need to succeed and thrive post-graduation.
The program spans ten weeks, and includes training through Junior Achievement of the Eastern Shore’s (JA) JA Fellows Program. Volunteers from JA will work with the Fellows participants throughout the ten weeks to ensure optimal on-the-job performance, and will counsel the participants on resume and soft skill development. By the end of the program, participants will have established work experience history, learned valuable job skills, cultivated the knowledge necessary for future career growth, and gained access to business resources in and around the City.
The only requirements are that the applicant be in high school and within the ages of 16 to 18.
