This summer, MIT has partnered with the city of Cambridge to participate in the Mayor’s Summer Youth Employment Program. The purpose of MSYEP is to provide high school students as well as some students in early college with the opportunity to work in a professional work environment and “expose youth to potential educational or career paths.” The Libraries, along with MIT’s Human Resources and Department of Facilities, have been selected as a work site within the community; each workplace is assigned a student where s/he works anywhere from 20-40 hours a week and meets regularly with a designated supervisor or mentor.
The Libraries have the pleasure of welcoming Tinischa Lahens as she joins Information Delivery and Library Access to help with a variety of circulation projects through August.
We had Tinischa answer some fun interview questions as a way to introduce her to Libraries’ staff and the rest of MIT. Without further ado, meet Tinischa!
