Onboarding dates 

An HR e-onboarding is required. Due to the current CDC guidelines around COVID-19 (Coronavirus), the onboarding session will be done electronically. Youth participants will receive more information about the paperwork they will need to complete and steps they will need to take to be officially hired by the end of April.

Required items for e-onboarding

Youth who were selected for the Mayor’s Summer Work Experience should provide the following items for onboarding session:

  • Your Tennessee state ID or a driver’s license
  • Your original social security card (not a copy)
  • Your bank direct deposit form and information. The account must have your name on it. If you don’t have a bank account, you’ll be issued a pay card where your paychecks will be loaded.
