Next Steps & Timeline
When the pandemic hit, we modified programming to allow for virtual options and have continued to allow for both virtual and in-person options for program participants and employers. Our priority is to keep our youth and partners safe and healthy. As the globe continues to navigate COVID-19, we are monitoring CDC guidelines closely to ensure our youth are properly equipped and prepared during the program. Youth applications are open at stlyouthjobs.org/apply.
