The Holly Springs Summer Work Crew Program is designed to give teens ages 14-16 the opportunity to get involved in their community, obtain valuable paid work experience, build resumes, and gain new skills and knowledge. Each year 24 people are selected to participate in one of two month-long sessions. The program is administered and operated by Bass Lake Park.
Crew members will spend approximately 70 percent of their time on general beautification projects of sites around Town, including trail maintenance and construction, interior and exterior painting, and planting trees and shrubs.
The remaining 30 percent of their time will be divided between training, team-building and educational experiences. Examples include field trips to significant natural and historic sites, a ropes course, and visits to see state and local government in action. Meetings are scheduled with local leaders, giving participants the opportunity to meet and greet.
Work hours are typically 8 a.m.-3 p.m., Monday through Friday.
Pay is $4.25 (youth minimum wage) per hour with direct deposit every two weeks. The participant must have a checking or savings account in their name.
