Get paid and gain skills to help you grow your career

The Denver Youth Employment Program (DYEP) is supporting students with workforce development, career exposure, and opportunities to further their individual passions and goals through work experience opportunities with local organizations, businesses and other high growth industries. Youth receive support from Job Coaches, mentors and coaching from local leaders, business owners, and community members. This program typically consists of a 120-hour work experience with various employers representing a diverse array of opportunities across the City of Denver. Youth are required to complete a Job Readiness Training (JRT) prior placement and beginning their experience.

DYEP is meant as an opportunity for youth to explore and be supported through their first work experience to ensure they have the skills to pay the bills.
