About Boley Centers’ Youth Employment Program

Boley Centers’ Youth Employment Program began over 15 years ago with the City of St. Petersburg funding the Summer Youth Intern Program. The program helped provide young people in high school and college the opportunity to earn much needed funds, teaching them valuable work skills and work ethics. The success of the program led the City to fund the After School Youth Employment Program which works with high school interns within the City of St. Petersburg. In 2016, the Juvenile Welfare Board added a third sector of the program that operates throughout the entire year and covers all of Pinellas County. Collectively, the three programs have the capacity to serve 335 young people and their families.

The program operates throughout the entire year and has a capacity of 185 youth. The interns work up to 15 hours per week during the school year and up to 30 hours per week during the summer break.

Boley Centers’ JWB YEP works with employers of all sizes, from large corporations such as The Humane Society, to franchises such as McDonald’s and Taco Bell, as well as independent entrepreneurs. The program presents a winning situation for these employers and the youth. Employers benefit when they employ JWB YEP interns because they get willing workers at only $6.00 per hour. The balance of their wages is paid by the grant along with workers’ compensation and employee taxes. In addition to income, the interns gain experience, improved self-esteem, and an understanding of how education impacts professional choices. Employing YEP interns helps our community.
