About Our Program
The Yellowstone County Summer Jobs Program (YCSJP) matches students with a job or paid internship, provides a paid foundational work skills training, and connects students with mentoring for the summer. YCSJP 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 in the Yellowstone County. Participating area businesses and community organizations help strengthen the local economy by connecting youth to meaningful work experiences.
YCSJP 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 attend a paid foundational work skills training workshop before the summer.
Students will meet with a mentor weekly during the summer.
YCSJP cannot guarantee internship or job placement, due to applicant availability or qualifications.
