Career Technical Training
The Youth Employment Program offers different programs for local youth to further their professional careers, chances at getting employed, and overall knowledge of various skills.
Y.E.P. partners with the local Fernwaters Charter School to provide youth with baseline knowledge regarding graphic design. We make sure the youth we instruct understand the basics of the Adobe Creative Suite Software, as well as how to operate various machines. Some of the systems we train our youth in include: screen printing processes, laser engraving, and the basics of various printing systems.
Using donated and purchased equipment Y.E.P. is able to expose individuals to a career as a welder. Y.E.P. teaches the basics of welding in a hands-on learning environment, which allows for a memorable and valuable experience.
Recreation and Resource Management
Y.E.P. works with partners such as U.S. Forest Service, the Bureau of Land Management, Wildlife fish and Game, and more to be able to provide a skill set to individuals. While doing this, the individuals that work for Y.E.P. are able to learn about both conservation and recreational related topics.
