The City of DeBary is accepting applications for the first Service Learning Program being offered to University High School students in freshman through junior classes.

The program will provide high-school students with the opportunity to learn on-the-job skills while volunteering in the community.

Students will gain résumé-building skills, such as leadership, teamwork, customer service, and conflict resolution, along with partaking in networking opportunities and career-development courses.

Upon graduation, students will be prepared for entry-level employment with the City of DeBary. Program hours earned are eligible for Bright Futures volunteer hours, and a letter of recommendation will be provided by the city.

The course runs October through May, and will meet once a month at 5 p.m. at DeBary City Hall. Students must attend six of the eight meetings to graduate. Also, volunteering in at least one program per season is required throughout the year.

The application deadline is 5 p.m. Friday, Sept. 23. Application should be made to the Parks and Recreation Department at DeBary City Hall, 16 Colomba Road.

An orientation for students and their parents will take place at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 28, and the first class is set for 5 p.m. Monday, Oct. 10.
