GYA is excited to announce a new pilot enterprise program! 

The Summer Employment & Leadership Program is a five week leadership program that will give youth, that would otherwise not qualify for GYA programs, an opportunity to gain meaningful career development and employment during the summer months. Youth will receive training, intense case management and 80 hours of paid work experience at a worksite based on individual career interests.

Tuition is $1,500 of which 70% will go directly to youth wages and fringe benefits. The remainder pays for training & operational costs,  which include: resume preparation, interview skills, workplace etiquette, career exploration & leadership development.

To qualify, youth must be 15 -18 years of age, have legal right to work documents and obtain a work permit. A $150 deposit will be required at the time of registration and $1,500 tuition must be paid in full by July 1. Deadline to apply is June 15.
