A recently implemented pro

employers in the private sector to
hire a high school senior, for 20

first 250 hours, said Sandra Moss,

rate is, up to 230 hours, she said.
At the end of the training
period, the employer must hire the
worker as a regular employee,

Any type of business can use this
service as long as it is not state or
federally supported, she said.
"There is not even that much
paperwork involved," said Moss.
"In fact, there is no paperwork
for the employer," she said.
To qualify for the Youth Tryout
program, a worker must be a high *
school senior who has had SO
hours "pre-employment skills
training," or vocational educa
tion, said Moss.""
The ESC will send a number of
applicants so employers may inter
view and screen in a normal
fashion, said Moss.
