To provide a meaningful work experience for youth hires, we partner with several city departments to help place young people in meaningful jobs. After selection, Youth hires are strategically placed in positions based on a collection of criteria and job availability.
There may be situations where we cannot place a young person in a desired field of choice; however, the skills that can be learned and gained from each job will still be impactful
KYEP Staff will determine the suitability of the job for each Youth Participant based on the following criteria:
- Transportation Availability
- Company/Agency Job Requirements
- Job Availability
- Skill Level
- Recommendation Letters
