On Tuesday, September 29, 2009, the Mayor and Councilmember Rusty Bailey invite the public to join them at 2 p.m. on the Grier Pavilion at City Hall as they sign the US Army PaYS (Partnership for Youth Success) agreement.

The Army PaYS program is a unique way to provide on-the-job training and connect US Army soldiers to potential City of Riverside jobs upon the completion of their tour. New US Army recruits and ROTC members select a City of Riverside profession prior to enlistment and during their tour they will receive training specific to the identified profession. This allows the enlistee to be fully trained and qualified when their tour with the Army is complete.

The City of Riverside hopes to utilize the Army PaYS program to fill future vacancies that historically prove difficult in recruiting efforts. Through this partnership, the Army provides the participant required training and experience and the City provides the participant an interview for available vacancies with the City. “These men and women dedicate their lives to saving ours and this program is a great way to give something back to these soldiers,” stated Councilmember Rusty Bailey.

“Through this program, the soldier is given the opportunity to establish a relationship with the City of Riverside, which ultimately helps keep Riversiders in Riverside.”
