Army revives Summer Hire Program in Europe
By STARS AND STRIPES Published: April 7, 2014
The Civilian Human Resources Agency began accepting applications Monday for the Army Europe Youth Summer Hire Program, which was suspended last year because of the budget turmoil caused by sequestration.
The program, which provides unskilled jobs involving clerical, light labor and childcare duties, is open to qualified family members of active-duty servicemembers and Defense Department civilian employees throughout Europe.
Applicant requirements vary by location. In most of Europe, U.S. citizen applicants must be at least 14 years old and younger than 23 for the duration of the program. Non-U.S. citizens in Germany and the Benelux countries must be at least 15 and younger than 23. Non-U.S. citizens are not eligible in Italy.
The application window for all areas except Hohenfels, Germany, is open now through May 16. Hohenfels will accept applications from May 5 through June 13. Applications must be submitted online, and applicants must turn in completed in-processing packets to their Civilian Personnel Advisory Center.
Employment through the program runs from June 30 through Aug. 9 in all parts of Europe except Hohenfels, where it goes from July 13 through Aug. 23.
