Information on LA COUNTY SUMMER YOUTH EMPLOYMENT PROGRAM Submitted by Bro. Bruce Turner

The following was submitted by Brother Bruce Turner,
Parents and students:
     The County of LA, a few hours ago,  just published an announcement for their Summer Youth Employment Program.  I have sent you the attached information regarding the program.  It is highly suggested that you read the information and respond.  To me, it was quite confusing on how to apply so the specific directions that I received after calling 3 times  are as follows:
Students are eligible  ONLY if they are between 14 and 21 years, AND , if they are receiving public assistance (CAL WORKS), OR if they are Foster youth.  Send an EMAIL stating that they are ________ years of age, and that they are receiving public assistance , or they are FOSTER YOUTH,  and they would like apply for the Summer Youth Employment Program….Include in the email your name, child’s name,  date,address, phone number, cell phone number, and grade.
Send the email to:
I would send this email in as soon as possible.  If your child/children is chosen, they will then contact you further, but this is the process. 
There is NO paper application initially.  Again, this is for the COUNTY OF LA…
If you have any questions, please contact Melissa Hernandez at Supervisor Mark Ridley Thomas office, at 213-974-2222.  She is in charge of it..
Please share and distribute this information to the youth who are potentially eligible for this program..
THANK YOU and God bless!!
