Community Agencies to Conduct Door-to-Door Neighborhood Survey April 13th -April 16th in parts of Midtown Kingston & Offer Youth Employment Opportunity!
Local community agencies are working together to implement a door-to-door neighborhood survey in parts of Midtown Kingston, April 13th-16th. The purpose of the survey is to solicit input from local residents about their satisfaction with the quality and availability of a variety of community resources and to gain a deeper understanding of the issues community members are facing. The survey will be available in English and Spanish and the results will be shared with the community once this phase of the project is complete. Partnering agencies include Family of Woodstock Inc, Rise Up Kingston, Citizen Action of New York Hudson Valley Chapter, and the City of Kingston.
As part of this survey effort, a total of twenty City of Kingston adolescents and young adults, ages 16-24, will participate in a paid job skills building opportunity and will serve as interviewers. They will be trained and supervised by experienced agency leaders, adult interviewers and volunteers and will learn vital employment skills, including interpersonal communication, time management, active listening, and record-keeping. Applications for this short-term youth employment opportunity are available at the Everette Hodge Community Center, located at 15-21 Franklin St.
***In order to be considered, individuals must complete the application and return it during the on-site open interview, which is required, on Saturday, April 6th, 10:00am-2:00pm at the Everette Hodge Community Center. Individuals must be available for the duration of the survey period, which coincides with a portion of the Kingston City School District’s Spring Break.***
