Final Day to Apply for Summer Employment Opportunities with Mayor’s Youth Academy and Kings Dominion


The deadline for submitting applications for summer employment opportunities with the Mayor’s Youth Academy (MYA) and Kings Dominion is today at 5 p.m.

MYA and Kings Dominion have partnered this year to provide up to 100 city youth, ages 16-19, the opportunity to work at the amusement park this summer. Selected MYA participants will begin working at the park in April 2013 during their spring break and on weekends until summer vacation. Once schools close in June, selected MYA youth will work varying schedules throughout the summer months. Applications are available at all Richmond Public High Schools and on the MYA website. Applicants for this program are required to participate in four pre-employment training sessions prior to being referred to Kings Dominion staff for interviews and placements.

GRTC has confirmed that it will again operate its Kings Dominion shuttle services which will offer MYA youth a reliable source of transportation to and from the park. Transportation is essential to the success of this summer employment partnership as it enables selected youth access to employment opportunities at Kings Dominion.

MYA will accept applications until 5 p.m. Wednesday, January 16. For additional information regarding this summer employment opportunity, please contact the MYA office at 646-7480.
