​The Youth Employment Program offers employment for our summer program to youths fourteen and older from May into September.  During the rest of the year we have weekend work projects, after-school work projects and community service projects.  Our typical summer crew consists of a crew leader and five to eight crew persons.
​​Our crew leaders have been previous crew members or college interns who want experience in resource projects. Crew members are young adults who are willing to learn and are physically able to do the job they are assigned.  Wages will vary based on individual job and experience.
Potential Positions.
​The season has come and gone, but before you know it we will be hiring again!

​​The Youth Employment Program is a non-profit organization that was originally formed to create jobs for the youth of Lemhi County.
​Over time our efforts have reached youth all throughout Idaho, and because of this our expenses are ever-rising.
If you have an interest in helping to better the youth of Idaho, please contact us. We are always seeking individuals willing to share their information and knowledge with our youth, as well as those who have the ability to certify our youth in such skills as CPR, first aid, and other useful life and work skills.

Youth Employment Program is always happy to accept donations...
The Youth Employment Program has been providing the youth of Central Idaho with first-time work experiences for the past twenty years. In that time, over 600 young men and women have been employed by our organization. A donation to the Youth Employment Program helps us to continue to provide opportunities to the youth of Central Idaho and the communities and agencies we serve.
Your donation helps YEP with:
Vehicles:  Driving just to a job site can be an experience on the remote and primitive roads we travel.  Our vehicles are used to their limits and maintenance and replacements are some of our biggest costs.
Tools:  The Youth Employment Program needs a variety of tools to complete our mission.  From chainsaws, Pulaski's and picmatic's, to post pounders and tamping bars, all have a place in our tool box, and are often in need of replacement.
Education:  Your donation helps us with training for our supervisors and crews. Whether it be chainsaw school, first aid/CPR, or plant identification classes, help us give our folks the best training available.

Thanks for donating to the Youth Employment Program!
