About Our Program

The HSJP program matches students with a job or paid internship, provides a paid foundational work skills training, and connects students with an adult mentor for the summer. HSJP participants are high school age youth and recent graduates eager to develop their work skills and explore their career options. The program expands access to high quality summer work experiences for students of Lewis & Clark and Broadwater Counties. Participating area businesses and community organizations help strengthen the local economy by connecting youth to meaningful work experiences.

HSJP Specifics:

  • HSJP placements run from early June to mid-August.

  • Participating employers agree to provide a paid position in a safe, productive work environment.

  • Students will average at least 25 hours/week for a minimum of 150 hours. Some students will work full-time and some will work part-time, depending on employer's need.

  • Students will be paid a minimum rate of $9.00 per hour.

  • Students will attend a paid foundational work skills training workshop before the summer.

  • Students will meet with a mentor at least 5 times during the summer.

  • HSJP cannot guarantee internship or job placement, due to applicant availability or qualifications.

Applying youth must:

  • Have a current photo ID and a Social Security number.

  • Be 16-19 years old (for priority placement).

  • Successfully pass a drug screening and background check, if required by their host employer.

  • Have transportation to the job site.

To apply, students will:

  • Complete an online application.

  • Submit a resume.

  • Complete an HSJP interview.
