Enrichment Fridays are paid professional development days that were incorporated into the summer youth employment program in 2015. During enrichment sessions, youth are exposed to several activities that prepare them to think critically about their personal endeavors, and professional goals.
The summer youth employment program will continue administering our enrichment virtually in 2022
The following topics that will be covered include:
Planning for after High School & Post-Secondary
Health & Wellness
Financial Literacy and Education
Youth Employees will have the opportunity to participate in workshops with different organizations and professionals. This year, Enrichment Friday’s will be held on July 15th, July 22nd, July 29th, and August 5th.
The summer youth employment program seeks individuals that are passionate about helping our youth reach their full potential and would like to facilitate a workshop with our youth employees this summer. If you are interested, reach out to Diamond Quiles, Enrichment Coordinator for more information.
To celebrate the achievement of the youth employees and showcase their talents, the City of Albany hosts a recognition ceremony at the end of each program year. This year the ceremony will be on August 12th from 10am -2pm. If you would like to volunteer, host a table, or donate any raffles, giveaways, please contact Diamond Quiles.
