YEP – Employer Orientation


Thank you for participating in the 2018 Youth Employment Program (YEP).  Because of partners like you, CareerSource Polk is able to provide YEP placements for 200 young adults throughout Polk County this winter.  We are excited to collaborate with you to provide a meaningful work experience to young adults ages 16 to 24 who are out-of-school.  You are uniquely positioned to provide training and guidance allowing these young adults to develop positive work habits, and other critical skill sets necessary to secure sustainable future employment. It is through your dedication and commitment that assist our participants with identifying possible career paths, obtain employment, and grow to become our future leaders.  Below is our online orientation that provides you with critical information you will need to be a successful worksite! Review the employer orientation thoroughly and contact Eshia Smith with any questions.

Below is our employer handbook that has been developed to outline the policies and procedures of our program.  And to give those who are supervising the tools needed to monitor performance.
