Employment

​​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.For more information about applying for a job with YEP:Please visit the Idaho Department of Labor website http://labor.idaho.gov to access the latest YEP job openings.For additional employment information you can click on the "YEP Personnel Manual" link or e-mail us.​

Volunteer

YEP 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.
