From DeKalb County:
This summer, DeKalb County CEO Michael Thurmond and the Board of Commissioners are hosting the 2021 DeKalb Virtual Career Academy (DVCA), the county’s fifth annual summer jobs program, run by WorkSource DeKalb.
“The COVID-19 pandemic continues to make it difficult for DeKalb County youth to find summer jobs and internships,” said CEO Thurmond. “Again, this year, DeKalb County will fill this training and financial gap by offering our summer jobs program as a virtual career academy.”
DVCA will provide 750 internships to DeKalb residents ages 14 to 24 who will be paid $9 per hour. Prospective participants are invited to apply for the program at www.dekalbcountyga.gov/careeracademy once the link goes live on May 5, 2021. Participants will be selected through a lottery system.
The application process is now open and closes at 5 PM on May 11, 2021, for the five-week program, which runs from June 7, 2021, through July 9, 2021.
DVCA is a unique collaborative partnership between the DeKalb County Government, DeKalb County School District, Georgia Piedmont Technical College (GPTC), WorkSource DeKalb, public/private partners and community resource agencies.
