screen_jobsHigh school students are at a stage where they realize how important work will be in their lives, and how, from a personal agency perspective, it will frame who they are and give them control over what they can do with their lives. Employers are at a stage where they recognize that the long term viability of their business is dependent upon their ability to attract today’s youth into the pursuit of careers essential to the success of their businesses and organizations.

With this in mind, the Mission of the Program is: To provide high school students with work experience internships where they learn essential job and life skills.

Employers are recruited from across Kitsap County.

Over the summer mid July to August, the interns are paid to do both a job and learn from a mentor about the various aspects of the business they are working in.

Applications are sought starting in February each year. Applications Due April 16th.
