WHAT IS THE JUST 1 PROGRAM AND HOW CAN I HELP?
Throughout San Luis Obispo County, we’re recruiting local businesses to partner in the third year of our “Just 1” campaign. Every high school in the county will hold a “Just 1” Summer Job Fair. Participating businesses are asked to consider hiring “Just 1” student in a meaningful job for the summer.
The “Just 1” Summer Job Program offers students the opportunity to get hands-on experience in the working world and earn some extra dollars at the same time. For students in career pathways, “Just 1” is a way to put into practice some of the skills and knowledge learned in the classroom. For other students, “Just 1” offers a look into the working world with the added benefit of earning some extra dollars for college or that much desired car.
Last year more than 300 high school students, 16 years of age and older, interviewed with more than 100 businesses, large and small…of course, employers are free to hire more than one student to fill their staffing needs!
