Harvey Milk Junior Leaders Gain Work Experience
by Orly Ramirez, Assistant Site Coordinator
About the Program ...
At Harvey Milk Civil Rights Academy Elementary School we are proud to have the Junior Leaders Program. The Junior Leaders program is a great opportunity for the older participants, who are in 3rd-5th grade, to experience the steps to apply for a job and the responsibilities to have a job. Junior Leaders learn responsibility and the skills to supervise and work with the younger grade K-2nd.
In order to be a Junior Leader, students had to apply for the position. Once they were hired, we had a meeting with all the Junior Leaders and went over expectations and job description; students who were still interested then signed a contract agreement.
