Youth Opportunity Program (YOP)

The SLAC Youth Opportunity Program is a ten week employment program designed primarily to provide supplementary income to families in need, and also to give local entry-level students exposure to the workplace while allowing them the opportunity to enhance their job skills. Students whose total family income does not exceed a predetermined amount will be given . Since these jobs are full time, we are not able to accommodate students enrolled in summer school or other activities.
