The Texas Part-Time Work Experience (PT-WEX) Program gives migrant high school students an opportunity to (1) explore their work and personal values and interests; (2) apply and learn skills in a job after school; (3) develop new career choices; and (4) obtain job experience. This manual provides participants of the PT-WEX program with some information they need to know about the program and gives them some tips on how to get along with their supervisors and co-workers. The manual provides information on the program's goals, the orientation the participants receive, the roles of the counselor and supervisor, evaluation of participant's progress, time sheets and paychecks, grounds for dismissal from the program, grievances, rights and benefits as a participant in the PT-WEX program, and complaint resolution procedure. Some tips for participants on staying with the job are provided. The manual also includes copies of the youth evaluation form and the PT-WEX program participant time sheet. A list of important things to know provides space for such information as the name, address, and phone number of the participant's worksite, supervisor, and counselor; dates of employment; hours of work; time records; salary; and who to notify if paycheck is lost.
