The Youth Employment Program Inc. is a non-profit corporation created to foster an atmosphere of educational development, and provide employment opportunities for young adults in local communities.

The YEP mission is to provide young people with first time structured jobs that teach positive working skills and habits which will serve them throughout life.  Our young people also experience the positive reward of getting paid for a job well done. Most of these work projects take place in an outdoor setting and build self -reliant leaders and team members. Completing these challenging work projects develops our young men and women into self-confident and contributing adults. YEP government agency office positions give excellent grounding in the world of management.

“I would just like to thank the Youth Employment Program for giving me the opportunity to work for the BLM. You guys helped me get my foot in the door as a seasonal weed technician and eventually work my way into a permanent fuels position. I hope the program can continue to give Lemhi County youth valuable work experience in natural resources.”
