Youth ages 14 to 21 are invited to attend the Jeffco YouthWorks Job Safari, a no cost summer camp which provides youth with an opportunity to explore different job industries. Participating organizations include Flight for Life, City of Golden Fire Department, Jeffco Sheriff's Office, City of Golden Water Treatment Plant, Sports Authority Field, United States Geological Survey, and more. Tour these facilities, learn about job requirements, what a typical day looks like, and what kind of education is required for that industry. These visits allow youth to identify career interests through observation of employees' daily routines and working environments.
The Job Safari is also an opportunity for youth to learn about the academic, technical, and interpersonal skills required for a particular job and how they connect to school, college work, and their goals for the future.
The Job Safari takes place on Tuesdays and Thursdays in July from 10am - 4pm at the Jefferson County Workforce Center. Lunch is provided for each site visit and snacks and drinks will be provided at the open house. To reserve a spot call the Youth Room at 303-271-4613 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Jefferson County Workforce Center, Laramie Building, 3500 Illinois Street, Golden.
