Benoit Seeks Two Youth Advisory Council Coordinators

PALM DESERT – Supervisor John J. Benoit has two paid positions available for college students to coordinate and oversee the Blythe and Coachella Valley high school students on the Youth Advisory Council (YAC). The deadline to apply is 5 p.m. May 29.

“I am seeking two dedicated college students to further inspire high school students to build a solid foundation of civil service,” said Supervisor John J. Benoit. “This is a valuable opportunity to work with youth while joining my staff and entering a fast-paced career in public service.”

YAC is involved in many community-enhancing activities, hosting meaningful events for youth and providing recommendations to officials on issues affecting youth. Members of the Coachella Valley and Blythe YACs volunteer at various athletic events, donation drives and programs benefiting worthy causes and nonprofits.  YAC students also organize events for the Riverside County Fair & National Date Festival, such as the Battle of the Bands contest.

The positions are open to full-time college students maintaining a 3.0 GPA, ages 18-24 and, ideally, pursuing a political science or business degree. Qualifications also include the ability to work as many as 20 hours per week and possession of a valid California driver’s license and clean driving record.

This Legislative Intern Program provides college students a paid opportunity to work part time as an intern for up to two years. The job pays $10/hour.
