We are now recruiting for the Spring 2018 season! 

To apply, you must be:

●      14-19 years old and/or currently in 9th-12th grade

●      A Red Hook resident

●      Willing to work outdoors and in all types of weather

●      Available on Tuesdays & Thursdays after school and Saturdays during the day

●      Able to provide working papers (if under 18), a social security card, and photo ID

Step 1: Download and print the application packet as a pdf or word document. Call us at 718-501-5394 if you want to pick up a printed application from our office. 

Step 2: Fill out the application, including the short answer questions. Print neatly please!

Step 3a: First time applicants should give an adult who knows you well the Written Reference Form included in the packet - they can be a teacher, coach, neighbor, club leader, etc. - they can NOT be related to you. They can either fill it out and send to us directly, or you can pick up and include with your application.

Step 3b: Returning applicants should update their resume and attach it to their application. If they’ve never written a resume and need some help, they can fill out and submit the Resume Guide Form.

Step 4: Turn in the application and reference form by FRIDAY MARCH 8, 5pm.  Applications can be mailed (postmarked no later than March 5) to P.O. Box 310028, Brooklyn NY 11231.  You can deliver your application in person to our office: 135 Richards Street - if we don't answer just slip the application under the door.  DO NOT mail the application to our office. Finally, if you downloaded the application, you can send the completed version as a pdf or doc file to corey@added-value.org.

Step 5: You will be contacted for an in-person interview to take place between March 13-16. Please be sure to note your availability in the application and to check your email regularly.

Step 6: Don’t forget about having valid working papers, a photo ID, and your social security card on the first day of work (Apr-3)! If you don’t have any of these items, it’s best to start the process of getting them as soon as possible—it can sometimes take weeks for them to arrive.

Download the Supplemental Forms: The Written Reference Form (download a pdf or word version) is required for all first time applicants. All returning applicants must submit a resume instead of a written reference. They are welcome to use the Resume Guide Form (download a pdf or word version) instead of a formal resume.

If you have any questions about the application packet, the process, or whether you are eligible to apply, please contact our Education Manager, Corey Blant at 718-501-5394 or email corey@added-value.org. Thanks!
