Which Summer Jobs are Interesting? These Are! Neighborhood Youth Corps and Others Tried Them.
National Commission on Resources for Youth, Inc., New York, NY.
This booklet provides examples of challenging jobs that have been done by kids, often Neighborhood Youth Corps enrollees. Jobs range from working with cops in Atlanta to helping the elderly in Chicago; from aiding emotionally disturbed children in Philadelphia to doing city wide surveys in Salinas, California. The jobs presented in this booklet were chosen not because they are the best necessarily, but because together they reveal the fascinating variety of jobs in which youth can excel. The booklet begins with a brief note on youth and the booklet itself. Some guidelines are presented for adults. Jobs are listed by types, including: (1) health, (2) recreation, (3) tutoring, (4) law enforcement, and (5) tailoring jobs for the community. A contact for additional information on the jobs listed, is given. A brief description of ways to evaluate jobs is given at the end of the booklet. (Author/KJ)
