Applications for Clark County’s 2013 Summer Business Institute (SBI) – a summer job program for current high school sophomores, juniors, and seniors – are now available online.
Students must submit their application and all accompanying documents by 5 p.m. Friday, Feb. 8, to be considered for the program. Students are strongly encouraged to begin working on their application and compiling the necessary accompanying documents as soon as possible so they do not miss the application deadline.
This is the 17th year Clark County has sponsored the SBI program, which provides selected teenagers employment opportunities in a variety of fields including law, medicine, architecture, education, and communications. The program is a partnership between Clark County, the Clark County School District, and more than 80 area businesses.
Program applications will be available online through the County website at www.ClarkCountyNV.gov on the County Human Resources Department web pages. Students requiring assistance completing the application online may contact their local high school job bank office or the Human Resources Department at (702) 455-4565.
Students are reminded that their complete application will include several documents and letters. The necessary documents include the student’s most recent school transcript; two letters of recommendation, and a signed and dated statement from their school principal, counselor or dean recommending the student for the SBI program. The letters of recommendation may be from a teacher, school administrator, religious leader, or employer, but may not come from a family member.
The application must be completed online through the County’s website. The supporting documents may be attached to the online application, or faxed to (702) 868-2504. Documents may also be hand delivered or mailed to the Clark County Human Resources Office at the Clark County Government Center, 500 S. Grand Central Parkway, Las Vegas 89155. Completed applications with all necessary supporting documents must be received by the Human Resources Office before 5 p.m. Feb. 8 to be considered for the 2013 program.
County staff will select 120 Clark County high school students who will be juniors, seniors, or college freshmen by the fall of 2013 to participate in the program. The program runs from June 17 through Aug. 9. Students will be selected based on interviews, volunteer activities and other criteria established by Clark County and the Clark County School District. Participants will be paid $8.25 an hour to work eight-hour days Monday through Thursday. Through regular seminars on Fridays, the students will learn about financial management, life skills and civic engagement. Additionally, all participants may be eligible for college scholarships at the close of the program.
All SBI applicants may also try to sign up for a free Leadership and Resilience course from Nevada Partners Inc. Due to limited space, only 100 students will be allowed to attend the course. Interested applicants are encouraged to contact Jeramey Pickett at firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a seat as soon as possible.
The free courses will be held on four consecutive Saturdays, Feb. 2, 9, 16 and 23, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Nevada Partners Event Center at 710 W. Lake Mead Boulevard, North Las Vegas. The courses will include sections on resume writing, interviewing, dressing for success, customer service, time management, nutrition/exercise, and social and educational objectives.
Clark County launched the SBI program in 1996 in an effort to expose inner-city youth to the variety of career choices around them. Over the years, the program was expanded to serve a more diverse student population.
For more information call (702) 455-2426 or (702) 455-4565.
