The Summer Job application process opened in 2015 on March 9 and closed on April 30. We are not accepting summer applications at this time.
After you have registered with Connecting Colorado and submitted your application, your information will be screened by Youth Services for thoughtful answers, completeness and accuracy. You will be contacted by Youth Services if you are selected to continue on to the eligibility process.
You will be contacted by email or phone after the application screening process begins. It is a good idea to apply early, as applicants will be contacted according to the order in which applications were received. Make sure to keep your contact information up to date in Connecting Colorado.
The program will start with training in June and ends in August. Each employer manages their own positions, but youth are limited to working up to 160 hours.
All participants will be required to participate in a full week of training prior to placement in a position. The training will include career exploration, soft skills, life skills, financial literacy, and job readiness.
We have several target industry clusters to choose from:
For 2015, we are paying $8.23 an hour. The pay periods follow the City and County of Denver schedule, and youth will receive details in their pre-employment training as part of orientation.
