YEP! Youth Employment Pathway

The Youth Employment Pathway (YEP!) program provides job placement and professional development opportunities for currently engaged Girls and Youth participants.

Youth will be placed in summer jobs at YWCA Minneapolis locations based on interests, experiences and criteria. Youth will start the day at their YWCA job site and be transferred to the Webber Park library for afternoon professional development workshops. Youth are responsible for transportation to their worksite and home. Bus tokens are available for those who need them. Please apply if you can commit to the full 8 weeks for both the work and professional development workshops. $500 stipends will be awarded to youth who successfully complete YEP!
