Under the federal Workforce Investment Act Year-Round Youth Program administered by the Detroit Employment Solutions Corporation, 20 youth ages 16 through 24 will be employed on Wayne State's campus from July 8-Aug. 18 as research, administrative or human services assistants, each assigned to one of the three university partners. Working 20-hours a week for $7.50 an hour, youth participants will be mentored and supervised by faculty and staff, gain valuable job skills and references, and hopefully set their sights on a college career.
