Youth Employment Services (YES 1)

YES I is a two-week program for 14 and 15 year-old students, hosted in Vancouver, Washington. YES I offers students – who need minimal assistance with their independent living and travel skills – the chance to explore their career possibilities, interests and aptitudes.  The program’s recreational and daily living experiences give the students additional skill building opportunities.

YES 1 participants practice the skills needed for career success, including building resumes, filling out applications, participating in mock interviews, touring worksites and completing community service projects.  Those students attending their 2nd year of YES 1 may also participate in job shadows.  During the program, YES 1 participants travel to Seattle over a 3 day period, to learn about the YES 2 program and participate in additional career readiness experiences.
