Professional Development: Week 3

Professional Development

Hello! Welcome back to another week of fun and excitement at DCRA.  As program coordinators Ms. Kristina Swann and Ms. Tania Williams informed you the first week, we’ll have a host of professional development sessions for you to participate in this summer.

This week, there are two sessions, but only one is mandatory.  If  you haven’t touched base with your supervisor or coordinator to let them know which sessions you’d like to attend, or if you’d like to make a change do so as quickly as possible.  This week’s sessions are:

Mandatory
Understanding Government Structure and Operations

9:15am to 10:30am, 2nd Floor Hearing Room
Wednesday, July 14th

DCRA Executive Panel Discussion
10:30am to 12:00pm, 4th Floor Emergency Operations Center

Two weeks in!

Hi! My name is Leah Britton. Today, my colleague and I Jason  Bonds interviewed some of the 2010 Summer Youth Employees. On our adventure we came across alot of different people but one that stood out to us the most was a veteran DCRA Summer Youth  employee in the Zoning/Structual department, he looked like he was  really having a blast ,and he was. Because of the major differences and changes that were made, like the new building and the new way things were being managed He told us that he was enjoying working this year a whole lot more than last year. After leaving there we made our way to the Office of Information Systems to find more summer youth workers. After a bit of looking  and searching around we managed to find a group of workers Their ages ranged from 14 to 20,  one thing they all agreed on was that  they all enjoyed their jobs. They loved  the work they were  being  giving  and the lessons that they were being taught while having fun.
