The Army is looking for a few good young men and women, but there’s no enlistment contract required.

The Civilian Human Resources Agency, Europe will start accepting applications March 31 from some military or Defense Department civilian family members for their annual summer hire program. The program is targeting those between the ages of 14 and 22, and will offer various jobs starting June 26 and ending Aug. 4.

“We’ve got clerical jobs in offices, outdoor jobs … and some in a child-care setting,” said Becky Melvin, marketing specialist for the program.

“This is an opportunity for them to get into the work environment,” she said. “This gives them good on-the-job training for something they might want to do someday.”

Available jobs, application forms and instructions are available on the agency’s Web site, www.chra.eur.army.mil.

Applicants are encouraged to submit their résumés on-line, but they can also be accepted by e-mail at Summerhire_Resumes@cpoceur.army.mil or by mail at CHRA CPOC Europe Region, Attn: Summer Hire Program, Unit 29150, APO AE 09100, according to a news release.

Those applying for jobs in Italy or Luxembourg must be U.S. citizens, and those wanting to work in child development positions must be at least 16.

Those applying for any job must turn 14 by June 27 and must be under 23 during the entire time of the program.
