Washing windows. Mowing lawns. Vacuuming carpets. Washing dishes. Trimming trees. For those with limited agility or stamina, these basic chores can seem overwhelming. And it is why they are so grateful when someone pitches in to help. Each month, 30 to 80 student volunteers from Orange County high schools get together to tackle these tasks for senior citizens. They are participants in Project CHERISH (Community Helpers Engaged In Restoring and Improving Seniors' Homes).

An office building in Orange will be transformed into a mall of reality today as 50 teen-agers in foster care get a taste of what life will be like when they set out on their own. The unusual program will feature real-life bankers, grocers, furniture sales people and others who will staff mock businesses throughout the building. The teen-agers will spend the day visiting each office in an effort to understand what it takes to create households of their own.

The city's Summer Jobs Program, the main citywide employment vehicle for youths from poor families, began this week with about $12 million less in funding--and about half as many jobs--than last summer. The cutback means that 10,000 fewer youths than last year will be employed this summer, officials said. Under the federally funded program, 14- to 21-year-olds work for six weeks at community-based organizations and government agencies. Last year the city received funding for about 21,000 jobs.
