Project HYPE is an 8 week health and wellness camp held at Valley Oak Park in the summer. We invite teens to apply to be Youth Health Mentors to gain work experience in a fun and exciting environment. Mentors are responsible for assisting our Recreation Staff, and lead the program participants (approx. 50-60 per day) through activities, setting up and breaking down games and activities, and other responsibilities as assigned. There are a limited number of Youth Health Mentor positions available. All registrants will be given an interview. Chosen candidates for the program will be assessed a $110.00 program fee to participate (which includes a t-shirt).
The Youth Health Mentor Program runs Mondays through Fridays from 8-12:30. In addition, one mandatory training session will be held in early June, as well as weekly trainings/meetings that they must attend. Mentors are expected to commit to and attend the vast majority of the camp program. If attendance issues occur, mentors can be asked to leave the program. The YHM program is for teens aged 13 – 17 years. For more information, please call Brandon Stoakley at (916)570-2806.Youth Health Mentor program Application.pdf
REGISTRATION DEADLINE IS FRIDAY, April 9th.
