Working Today for A Better Tomorrow...

YEP'S mission is to provide young people with first time structured jobs that teach positive working skills and habits which will serve them throughout life. ​Our young people also experience the positive reward of getting paid for a job well done. Most of these work projects take place in an outdoor setting and build self-reliant leaders and team members. ​Completing these challenging work projects develops our young men and women into self-confident and contributing adults. YEP government agency office positions give excellent grounding in the world of management.​

EVENTS​
What an awesome weekend!!
Many thanks to all that helped with the banquet dinner and the MTB race.

The 2nd annual "12 hours of Disco" mountain bike endurance race got its shotgun start at 9 am on Saturday. With over 170 racers representing 10 states this event promises to be a great future event.

The Forest Service has also employed and trained office workers in many skills up to and including website development. According to Adams the wide diversity of work opportunities offered by the BLM and the Forest Service fits perfectly with the YEP concept. “That’s the goal… to get these kids some direction!” Read more...
