Teens can qualify to volunteer at Food Co-op

The Davis Food Co-op is accepting applications for its Co-op Hands-On Work Training Program (CHOW) for youths ages 16-17 who are work-ready but lack the experience and training to get a paying job.

CHOW is designed to give graduates the ability to volunteer at the Davis Food Co-op, 620 G St. Successfully completing CHOW provides a waiver to the age requirement for volunteering at the Co-op.

Just like in the real world job market, acceptance in to CHOW is competitive. Initial requirements are the ability to follow directions; learn, retain and apply information; read and write basic English; speak and understand basic English; comply with safety instructions; and make eye contact with and speak to instructors (and shoppers!).

Students who will be 16 or 17 at the time the training starts June 10, are in the household of a member of the Davis Food Co-op and meet the requirements may apply for by emailing Julie Cross at jcross@davisfood.coop. Include your name, the name of the Co-op member, your age and your volunteer or work experience, plus why you’d like to attend CHOW.

Applicants will be invited to an interview, and successful candidates will be invited to attend CHOW on June 10-14.

Teens who are not yet work-ready, and applicants who are not invited to the CHOW session, may attend the open work training session June 20-21. This session covers some of the material offered in CHOW, and is designed to give students basics that they can use in volunteering and job hunting.

Students in the open work training session are not eligible for a waiver to volunteer at the Co-op.

For more information, email Cross or call her at 530-758-2667.
