The Youth Employment Project (YEP) is an initiative to promote employment opportunities for teens and young adults. Additionally, YEP strives to provide lifelong skills and experience to further enhance future career paths.

YEP is a partner in Helping Youth Prepare for Employment (HYPE), a Youth Employment Network, a collaboration of community partners including the Workforce Alliance of South Central Kansas, the City of Wichita, the Greater Wichita YMCA, and USD 259. These partners all have well established youth employment programs and work together to achieve significant community impact.
