SB to use state to hire young people

San Bernardino has received a $4.1 million state grant that it will use to hire 70 young and early-career staff members during the next two years.

Positions will be filled in parks and recreation, animal services, library, and police departments, along with jobs in some community-based organizations, according to a statement on the city’s website.

“The ability to create so many positions for young, early career individuals is not something that happens very often,” said San Bernardino City Manager Robert Field in the statement. “We will be able to place new staff members, inspire them to pursue careers in public service, and teach them the skills and knowledge they need to advance.

“When their term is over, they will have the experience to qualify for permanent positions in San Bernardino or at a nearby agency.”

The grant comes from California Volunteers, which is part of the governor’s office. California Volunteers administers the CaliforniansForAll Youth Jobs Corps program, which helps employ people under 30 years old statewide, according to the statement.
