Youth Music Project hiring interns

Youth Music Project in West Linn seeks incoming high school juniors and seniors to assist in music classes during the 2013-14 school year.

YMP’s work-study program gives high school juniors and seniors paid work experience while they learn from YMP’s experienced faculty.

The program was created to give high school students a place to combine their musical passion and work and to encourage YMP music students by giving them musical role models closer to their age.

Interns will work up to 12 hours each week in the afternoons and on some Saturdays. They might work one-on-one with students, shout out tempo to the class or demonstrate a riff.

Like all YMP instructors, interns must pass a strict FBI background check. Interns will be paid at the rate of $10 per hour.

Interested students from West Linn, Wilsonville, Lake Oswego, Tigard, Tualatin, Oregon City, Canby, Milwaukie and Southeast Portland are invited to apply online at youthmusicproject.org/internship-form.

Successful applicants will be high school juniors or seniors in good standing; highly skilled in piano, guitar, drums, bass and/or vocals; interested in rock, pop and country music styles; and able to work with children.

Interns must provide their own transportation to and from YMP, which is located at 2015 Eighth Ave. in West Linn.

New students must register at WLHS

Students who are new to West Linn schools and who plan to attend West Linn High School at any grade level must attend a new-student registration on either Aug. 21 or Aug. 22 between 8 and 10 a.m.

Counselors will be available to meet with new students and their families to facilitate scheduling.

Incoming freshmen who attended middle school at Athey Creek, Rosemont Ridge or Three Rivers and completed the forecasting process in the spring do not need to register as new students.

Those preregistered incoming freshmen, as well as sophomores, can pick up their schedules on Aug. 22 between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.

Incoming juniors and seniors can pick up their schedules on Aug. 21 from 10 a.m to 4 p.m. All fees and fines must be cleared at that time.

Schedules for all students will be posted online after 8 a.m. on Sept. 1.

Because some schedules may change, all students should check their schedules online, print them out and bring them to the first day of school on Sept. 3 for freshmen and on Sept. 4 for older students.
