CLASS Parks Youth Employment Internship Program
YOUTH EMPLOYMENT INTERNSHIP PROGRAM
Three times a year the CLASS Parks Program runs a new track of YEIP
which provides hundreds of teens with pragmatic life skills (e.g.
money management, professional etiquette, resume composition, job
skills, communication and tolerance) valuable for facilitating a
youth's transition into life after high school. The life skills
instructions are complemented by distinct internship training courses
1) Camp Counselor Leadership Training, 2) Outdoor Education Leadership Training, 3) Crime Scene Investigation Leadership Training.
Internship training is conducted throughout the school year on designated Saturdays. Awards and incentives are given to graduates of the program completing compulsory training hours as required by YEIP guidelines.
