Milpitas Recreation and Community Services partners with other City departments and local businesses to offer high school-aged Milpitas residents valuable work experience and connections in a career path of interest. Students also earn school service credits for their participation, typically 5-10 hours per week over a period of 8 weeks. Participating employers contribute to workforce development of potential future employees and benefit from an infusion of youthful energy and fresh ideas.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, the Milpitas Youth Force program has been restructured to provide students a safe, work-at-home experience collaborating in a team with other teens to help solve a real-life work challenge that a Milpitas employer is facing. Students will research, develop and present a proposed solution to the employer. Space is limited, so apply today!
The 2021 program runs February 4-April 9. Deadline to apply for this year’s program is January 25, 2021, with panel interviews beginning February 1.
