Once again, MYEEP had a wonderful time at the University of California, Berkeley’s “Cal Day” open house! Over 100 of our participants joined in on the festivities including student organization tables, open lectures, dorm tours, and of course, the free giveaways. A special congratulations goes out to Group 7 and their Coordinator Chaperone, Tyree Johnson for winning this year’s Scavenger Hunt!
Until next year, thank you to all of our coordinators for chaperoning the youth and Berkeley’s Alpha Phi Omega for partnering with us!
For the current school-year program, MYEEP Central Office is hosting one wonderful intern, Haley Huang, from our JVS location. Haley is currently a 9th grader at Lowell High School and is working as the Communications Intern for Central Office located at the Japanese Community Youth Council (JCYC). Keep reading below to hear Haley’s thoughts on MYEEP!
I love it here at JCYC. Everyone is so friendly, outgoing, and very funny. It’s not like the boring offices you see on television. Everyone in the office is close to one another by the pictures they have, the pranks, and they are always laughing. Sometimes we have rocket wars which are ridiculously fun!
In the beginning of workshops at JVS, everyone was shy, but the CITs and Diana would play icebreakers which loosen the mood up. They taught us about teamwork, presentation skills, banking, budgeting our money, and what is appropriate for work and what is not. The presentation skills MYEEP has taught me helped me a lot in life. For example, during class I’m not afraid to raise my hand like before. I used to be shy and intimidated. Also, because of my newly learned skills, I was more open to new people and made a lot of new friends at school.
MYEEP helps set the ground for your future. There are many great opportunities for scholarships, internships, and future (dream) jobs. You also get the job experience and a little bit of money just for you to spend, save for the future, help pay bills for your family, or just emergency cash.
A big thank you to all of our host sites, chaperones, volunteers, and youth who participated in our annual MYEEP in SF Career Day event last Friday! We had a great time meeting everyone and hearing about so many awesome career opportunities.
If you’re interested in participating as a host site next year or if you want more information on hosting a MYEEP intern at your workplace, please send an email to cheryl(at)myeep.org.
Thank you again to all who were involved this year. We’re looking forward to seeing everyone again in 2014!
