Meeteetse Youth Work Program
Summer is right around the corner and we are sure you are gearing up for a busy summer season. We would like you to
consider joining our Meeteetse Youth Work Program for the 2014-2015 year.
Our goal for the program is to provide youth work experience and provide businesses the extra help they may need and cannot
afford. The program pays for the youth wages and the businesses agree to help provide our youth with a learning work experience.
The Meeteetse Youth Work Program Board is now requiring a $250.00 Business registration fee. The fee is due
to the Town of Meeteetse on March 1, 2015. The fee will help with the initial program costs and help leverage private
donations and grant dollars. The funding for the program is changing and it is important to show business buy-in. Businesses
are also required to sign a contract with the Town of Meeteetse and sign the Meeteetse Youth Program
Guidelines. Please contact Angie at 868-2278 or [email protected] to receive a copy of these documents.
If you are interested in the program please complete a job description for the positions you may have available. The
job descriptions can be emailed to [email protected] or dropped off at the Town Hall. Please provide your job
description by April 6, 2015. These job descriptions will be handed out to the youth on April 11, 2014.
Listed below are the tentative dates for all Meeteetse Youth Work Program Meetings:

Cafeteria. We will to go over program guidelines and labor laws. All businesses who participate in the program must have this
training, it is very important information. Please bring your signed contract and Meeteetse Youth Program Guidelines to this
meeting.
Meeteetse Job Interview and Enrollment will be held May 11, 2015 @ 5:30 at the School Gym. All Work Program

The MYWP is a partnership between the state of Wyoming Department of Workforce Services, the Town of
Meeteetse, the Meeteetse Schools, the Wyoming Community Foundation, and many Meeteetse employers. It is
in this spirit of partnership that we ask you to financially support this program at whatever level you are
able. This year we are tasked with raising $10,00 to match a contribution from the Wyoming Department of
Workforce Services. Any contribution would be greatly appreciated, and every dollar goes back into the pockets
of the youth employed by the program. For more information feel free to contact John Fernandez @ 307-8682603- [email protected] or Angie Johnson @ 307-868-2278- [email protected]
