Summer Youth Employment

The Office of Economic Develoopment is happy to announce that the online application is now open for OED’s Summer Youth Employment Program. To be eligible, youth must be residents of the City and County of Denver or part of Denver County’s Foster Care Program. Priority will be given to low-income youth living in high-risk neighborhoods.

Application instructions and FAQs can be found on our website at A flyer is also attached for further distribution.

Youth will need to create a Connecting Colorado account at (if they don’t already have one), or update their account with current information. Once they have completed this first step, they will see a link to the Summer Youth Employment Program application on their home page. This application may take up to an hour to finish and must be completed in one sitting.

Youth who do not have access to a computer with internet are invited to come to our office or to their local library to fill out the online application.
