MN Youth Program

RMCEP provides a summer work experience program for youth who are aged 14 – 24, meet income guidelines, or may be an at-risk youth.   The goal of this program is to work closely with each youth to provide a work experience in the summer months, and support learning positive and healthy work ethics. 

Elements of the MYP Program include:

  • Paid work experience;
  • Coordination with summer school classes and working;
  • Leadership development opportunities;
  • Mentoring;
  • Limited supportive services (financial assistance with certain costs related to participating in work experience or meeting an educational goal)
