Are you a local youth interested in a career in healthcare? Kaiser Permanente’s School of Allied Health Sciences is offering an Introductory Preparatory Program starting Tues., June 27 for youth and young adults interested in this career pathway. An added plus? You get paid.

The four-week virtual/in-person program is being coordinated through the City of Richmond’s YouthWORKS for Richmond residents between the ages of 16-24 and students with an IEP/504 who are between the ages of 16 and 21.

Those who participate in the program will receive a stipend of up to $1,000 based on their attendance, according to YouthWORKS Interim Program Manager Bouakhay Phongboupha. Participants who complete the program will also receive a Certificate of Excellence.

Access the online application here—and since it’s used for various programs—indicate that you are interested in the Kasier program in the open box provided toward the end of the application. The deadline to apply is Thurs., June 16.
