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.

Nominate a Youth Today!

Bainbridge Youth Services invites you to nominate a youth under the age of 21 for the 17th annual BYS Compassionate Action Celebration. The program will focus on individual nominees this year. Please help us honor a young person who has made a difference through acts of kindness, compassion, service or environmental stewardship. Our aim is for nominees to more fully understand the positive impact they have had on you or those around you. Please tell us what the youth did that made him or her stand out. Or, briefly describe how the youth made an impact.

BYS wants to celebrate youth who go above and beyond what is required or expected in school, jobs, activities, and relationships with others in the community. Nominees will be honored at a Compassionate Action Celebration on November 15, 2018.

To nominate a youth for this recognition, CLICK HERE.

For questions, email Susanne Schneider: Susanne@bainbridgeyouthservices.org.
