Around Town: Teens Find Summer Jobs Through Youth Employment Services’ Program

This summer over 30 local businesses partnered with the City to mentor and train Santa Clarita Valley teens in the summer program.

Since 1991, the City of Santa Clarita’s Youth Employment Services (YES), program has helped special-needs, low-income and at-risk youth, ages 14-18 years old, obtain job skills training and employment.
