Welcome to the DSG HIRED Program for Teens!

The next session of HIRED will be offered once a month beginning in January 2019. Please click on the flier below for more information regarding the program. 

 HIRED-Jan-2019-.jpg

In order to participate, you must be willing to transport your teen to the job site (arriving by 2:30pm) which will likely require them to leave school early one day a month for 5 months. (5 total days).

DSG will transport teens from the job site to the DSG office or remain onsite with your teen until the conclusion of the program at 5:30pm. You MUST pick up your teen at 5:30pm. 

Each teen will be provided a 1-on-1 support during the class to build skills.

$100 fee for all participants accepted into the program. (Those who have done the program before can still apply. We may do a HIRED part 2 class if enough interest-with different job sites). 

 Important dates to remember:

December 1st, 2018: Applications were due

January 1st, 2019: Participants notified whether they made it or not (limited space)

Dates of program: Jan. 17, Feb. 28, Mar. 28, Apr. 18, May 16
